The Next Generation of Political Party Leaders Catalysts for a Resilient Democracy

International Republican Institute (IRI)


To foster political parties that are internally democratic and representative of constituents’ interests, the institute will implement a program of technical assistance and training to strengthen parties’ structures and processes and the cultivation of emerging leaders through Emerging Leaders Academies. Further, the institute will provide district-level candidates with technical support to contest in the upcoming local elections.  Concurrently, the institute will provide technical consultation to parties’ national and provincial leadership bodies to support the internal development and reform of operating principles and practices.
