The Labour Party supports political parties in new and emerging democracies through its Westminster Foundation for Democracy programme.
We work together to ensure the values of democracy, freedom, justice and human rights are shared across the world.
As one of the oldest and most established social democratic parties in the world, Labour has long sought to share experiences and build alliances with like-minded parties across regions.
We do this by supporting bilateral projects with other parties and by building regional and thematic networks. Throughout, we focus on working with women and young people; two groups that are often overlooked and marginalised in the political process.
Where we work
We work in countries all over the world, but predominantly in sub-Saharan Africa, the Western Balkans and the Middle East.
