    Senior Programme Officer, Democracy and Gender, International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, MENA Region and Tunisia

    Logotype

    The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance — International IDEA is an intergovernmental organization that supports sustainable democracy worldwide. Its objective is to strengthen democratic institutions and processes. International IDEA acts as a catalyst for democracy building by providing knowledge resources, policy proposals and supporting democratic reforms in response to specific national requests.
