The Democracy Development Program NPC (DDP) was initiated in 1993 as a partner project of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation of Germany. For the last 21 years it has been a non-partisan, non-profit organisation, supporting capacity building on governance and civil society levels to ensure that both are empowered for meaningful participation in South Africa’s social transformation.

 

Since its inception, DDP has been committed to the promotion of the following principles:

  • sustainable democracy and good governance

  • political awareness and citizen participation 

  • tolerance and a culture of human rights

  • decentralised and pluralist government. 

 

We achieve this by:

  • creating platforms for civil society engagement with all spheres of government 

  • raising awareness of constitutional rights and obligations 

  • empowering the youth 

  • monitoring, analysing and responding to governmental policies and legislations. 

  

NOTICE:

Coming soon: This website will be replaced with a new, fresher design, aimed to giving you, the end-user, a more user-friendly experience.

Best regards, The DDP Team

Citizen Mobilization

What motivates citizens to get involved?

Start by reading these fascinating papers from the Development Research Centre: http://www.drc-citizenship.org/pages/research-themes.

Look at our Knowledge Portal on Citizen Mobilization, which includes papers and presentations from the DDP/ACCEDE conference, 28-30 October 2013.

The Practice in Participation forum is an excellent place to learn more and to discuss your experiences and questions with like-minded practitioners from all over the world.

Let's talk about your big questions and your experiences of mobilizing citizens  -  follow @DDP_tweets on Twitter.
