The “Supporting the Ethiopian Political Parties Dialogue” programme, implemented by the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD), aims to reduce conflict and enhance peace, stability and democracy in Ethiopia.

NIMD does this through political dialogue on political and constitutional reform between Ethiopia’s political parties. In addition, NIMD works with parties to build their capacity to participate effectively in the dialogue and upcoming elections scheduled for May 2020.

The project, scheduled to run from July 2019 to December 2020, will therefore work alongside parties to enhance a peaceful, sustainable democratic transformation in Ethiopia. Parties will be capacitated to enact significant political and constitutional reforms, and thereby lay the foundations for a stable, collaborative, and pluralist democratic culture.
