Why we exist

About EDC

Our History

We are a new consulting firm born from the desire to improve our European Democracy. The 2019 European elections have shown a renewed interest for our Union, but also the limits of citizens’ engagement. Following these elections, European Democracy Consulting was set up to help decision-makers, public institutions, and NGOs in their promotion of a more democratic, transparent and efficient European Union.

Our Vision

Democracy does not always come easy; there may be vested interests opposing its development. As a result, sixty years after its creation, the European Union still falls far short of the democratic standards of developed countries. We wish to bring our solid expertise to support a value-based discussion and propose concrete political and legal solutions that will strengthen our common democracy for the general interest of all Europeans.

Private companies were the main donors, and the right-leaning parties secured 86% of donations. Recommendations include improving transparency and the format of reporting.
