About this Webpage

The aim of this website is to compile and showcase the democracy building initiatives being promoted by Massimo Tommasoli. The pictures, publications, videos and documents found here all demonstrate and represent the democracy building efforts of both International IDEA, as well as Mr. Tommasoli himself.

"Democracy is strongly linked to the three pillars of the UN mandate: peace and security, human rights, and development. Democracy as a process of expanding political choice plays a critical role in both achieving each of these goals, and reinforcing their inter-linkages. There is an increasing awareness that some fundamental objectives of UN work cannot be achieved without addressing the issue of democracy." [Massimo Tommasoli, Taken from the Statement at the General Assembly 5 November 2007]
