OECD’s Reinforcing Democracy Initiative

Full Text Sharing


Democracies are under unprecedented levels of pressure from within and without. The polarisation of political discourse, geopolitical tensions, public health and economic crises, and creeping foreign influence in democratic processes – all also fueled by mis- and disinformation – have tested citizens’ trust in public institutions and are driving many governments to strengthen and protect democratic values and processes. 


Trust in public institutions underpins the 5 pillars of work that form the OECD Reinforcing Democracy Initiative:


  • Pillar 1 - Combating mis- and disinformation
  • Pillar 2 - Strengthening representation, participation and openness in public life
  • Pillar 3 - Embracing the global responsibilities of governments and building resilience to foreign influence
  • Pillar 4 - Gearing up government to deliver on climate and other environmental challenges
  • Pillar 5 - Transforming public governance for digital democracy
