Whereas international donor agencies provide substantial support for elections, civil society development, state-building, and other aspects of post-conflict democratization, political party assistance has often remained limited. However, the report argues that international donors seeking to support the democratic transition of fragile, post-conflict states cannot avoid engaging with political parties; political parties are often part of the problem, but part of the solution as well. The report provides an overview of the lessons learned in the field of political party assistance in post-conflict societies and NIMD’s approach to it. Through its report, NIMD aims to contribute to the debate and to present some practical guidelines for engagement in post-conflict situations.
