In democraciaAbierta we work to foster inclusive democratic debate about politics and society. With defence of human rights as the main focus, we believe that free thinking drives the ideas that are able to transform the world. Thus, we fight to defend spaces of freedom, transparency and accountability that these ideas require in order to flourish and grow.
democraciaAbierta seeks to strengthen the ecosystem of open democracy and political innovation by connecting voices and experiences on a global level. We reinforce and broaden analysis and truly independent alternative narratives, capable of challenging hegemonic media outlets and proposing new democratic practices to all of us.
