Democracy Council

Welcome to the Democracy Council

The Democracy Council (DC) was founded on the belief that good governance, economic opportunity, human rights, the rule of law, and the free exchange of information are fundamental elements of stable societies and the universal rights of all.

“The project was devised by the Democracy Council, a non-profit organization based in California and headquartered in Los Angeles. As you may know, the Democracy Council previously founded the Palestinian Transparency & Accountability Project … to promote financial and governance reform. The group’s work was largely credited with revealing a $900 million gap in the PA budget.”

Nongovernmental organizations, such as the Democracy Council, play a valuable role in promoting stable democratic institutions and respect for human rights around the world.”
