the global coalition for democracy
  • Supporting democracy activists from all over the world, organizing knowledge-sharing events and campaigning across countries...

    ... these are Democracy International's core activities. Our aim is to strengthen direct democracy at all political levels in the nation states, in the EU and on the global level.

  • Activists of Democracy International and Mehr Demokratie

    We want to realise more direct democracy. We have enough of decisions taken by a small circle of politicians behind closed doors.

    We believe in the power of direct democracy to better our lives and the societies in which we live. Join our network if you feel the same. Together we can bring about change.

    Democracy means that power rests with the people and not with kings, aristocrats, or technocrats. This is the core principle of democracy. Yet unfortunately, real democracy too often is not realised.

    One of our core aims is a better and more democratic European Union. We advocate the improvement of the European Citizens' Initiative so that citizens can truly participate in EU politics.

At this very moment, history in Europe is being written. The future of the European Union is being haggled and gambled over in a state of panic and helplessness. Democracy International instead calls for a proper debate to lay the foundation for a better, more democratic and more social Europe. In 50 years we don’t want to be telling our grandchildren that we sold off cheap our democracy, but that we stood up for a Europe of the citizens.

Direct democracy is under threat by EU bureaucracy that does not care about the citizens. Now is our chance to fight for the survival of the European Citizens’ Initiative which allows you to have your voice heard and influence EU policy.

We must mobilise now to call for a Europe not of financial markets and lobbyists but a Europe of the people.
