As a network of political foundations, affiliated to different political ideologies across the democratic spectrum, ENoP and its members advocate for the respect of democratic principles and political pluralism inside and outside of Europe. They build bridges, create common grounds and understanding between political and civil society actors in Europe and partner-countries to strengthen core democratic values, and contribute to nurturing pluralistic and inclusive societies.

The Working groups deliberate regularly and provide recommendations to the institutions of the European Union and to decision-makers at national level. The platform helps political foundations exchange expertise among themselves; with their local partners, and offers an opportunity for a “structured dialogue” with the European Institutions. As a result, ENoP and its members are fit to formulate concrete policies and actions that help the EU identify and attain its goals in democracy and sustainable development in a more coherent manner.
ENoP accompanies and provides input to the development of EU initiatives for a more effective democracy support agenda. Bringing our unique cross-party perspective, we promote peer to peer multi-party cooperation in countries across Europe and the rest of the world.
Raising awareness and working on the effective implementation of the SDGs laid out in the Agenda 2030, both internationally and on member state level, with a special focus on SDG 16 and mainstreaming democracy support.
