Strengthening Engagement Through Education for Democracy


Ukrainian students participate in a Democracy: From Theory to Practice course activity.

The International Foundation for Electoral Systems’ (IFES) civic education programming fosters meaningful engagement in democratic life. It is founded on the belief that all people deserve the right to self-governance, rule of law and human dignity, and that it is the work of each generation to build and safeguard these principles. To this end, through our Strengthening Engagement Through Education for Democracy (SEED) methodology, IFES partners with academia and civil society worldwide to equip youth with the knowledge and skills essential for democratic engagement in the digital age. IFES’ newly released SEED fact sheet outlines the methodology, program highlights and impact the curriculum has had around the world.
