Mission Statement
Founded in November 1999, the Institute for Democracy and Mediation (IDM) is an independent, non-governmental organization working to strengthen the civil society, to analyze and improve Albania's integration processes, to assist reforming and the consolidation of good governance and inclusive policy making processes through expertise, innovative policy research, analysis and assessment-based policy options. IDM is dedicated to develop a profound understanding on contemporary challenges to shape sustainable reforming strategies and public policies in key socio-economic and political development pillars, as well as to advance regional cost-effective approaches in support of intra / cross sectorial cooperation initiatives of key public and civil stakeholders based on comprehensive research, policy assessment and multifaceted analysis. These guiding principles represent the foundation of our mission, on which IDM forms the framework of its programme priorities, shapes the results of its work and drives the services and contribution to civil society efforts.
