About Project

The Regional Academy for Democracy is a unique initiative in political capacity building in the Western Balkans, supported by the European Union, Balkan Trust for Democracy and International Visegrad Fund. The project is implemented by seven civil society organizations, members of the Network of Schools of Political Studies operating under the auspices of the Council of Europe.

The Regional Academy for Democracy (RAD) aims to contribute to regional cooperation in the Western Balkans in the fields of democracy, human rights, justice and institution building, through building the capacities of next-generation political leadership and facilitating their mutual understanding and cooperation. Dedicated to already established political actors who will in the near future form the highest-level political leadership, the RAD aspires to shape a human infrastructure that will help solidify current democratisation processes, uphold the standards of human and minority rights above political or national interests, and embrace a spirit of regional cooperation and reconciliation with neighbours.
