【亞太監督國會國際論壇】與會團體及講者介紹─ NDI

National Democratic Institute for International Affairs(NDI)

  NDI 是ㄧ個成立於1983年的非營利、無黨派及非政府組織。其足跡至今遍佈世界各地超過120個國家,目的在於建立及強化民主的實行。這三十年以來,NDI都致力於各項能提升民主的活動與計劃。其宗旨為:『促使各當地合作夥伴建立公民組織並監督選舉過程,並以此要求公開透明且具可靠性的政府。』

為了要更符合每一個不同國家的需求,NDI會與當地的合作夥伴藉由創立公民組織單位、提倡人民多加參與…等,共同推動提升政府透明化及公信力。NDI聚集了許多都想為民主努力的人與團體,共同進行想法、知識及經驗的交流。此外,NDI內部也劃分了許多執行計畫,如公民參與計畫、辯論計畫、民主與科技計畫等等。

NDI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, nongovernmental organization that has supported democratic institutions and practices in every region of the world for more than three decades. NDI and its local partners work to promote openness and accountability in government by building political and civic organizations, safeguarding elections, and promoting citizen participation. The Institute brings together individuals and groups to share ideas, knowledge, experiences and expertise that can be adapted to the needs of individual countries. As a founder of the OpeningParliament.org community and a co-chair of the Open Government Partnership's Legislative Openness Working Group, NDI has worked to share learning on issues of parliamentary openness .
