The European Endowment for Democracy has been working to support civil society actors and democracy activists in the EU Neighbourhood since July 2013. During this period, EED has evolved from a concept put forward by EU Institutions and Member States into a vibrant, innovative member of the democracy support community.

We are pleased to invite you to our Special Event to celebrate the Endowment’s three-year anniversary.
