NIMD seeks to make an impact on three levels: political system, actor, and culture. These levels are interrelated. For instance, political parties can only take up their role if the political system and environment allow them to do so. At the same time, democratic systems need political parties and democrats in order to function and provide the stability and conditions needed for development. That is why the actor and culture level are also important. In every country, the political system, the actors, and the political culture differ. Therefore, NIMD always starts with an in-depth political analysis of the country and uses this to develop tailor-made activities. Through these activities, we seek to bring about change on political system, actor, and culture level.
