Annual Report 2018

The European Endowment for Democracy has been supporting pro-democracy activists in the European neighbourhood and beyond for the past five years. In 2018, EED supported more than one hundred initiatives, including the award of 30 emergency grants. This report provides an overview of the different political environments in which EED operates – from transitional and restrictive environments to authoritarian regimes and conflict situations – and provides highlights of some of the initiatives we have supported in each of these contexts. We also provide in-depth case studies that demonstrate EED’s approach to democracy support, and tell some of the stories of the struggles and aspirations of our grantees.
