International IDEA is an intergovernmental organization that supports sustainable democracy worldwide. Recently, IDEA asked us to develop an online database that covers constitution-building processes in conflict-affected states from 2001 to today. The database, aimed at scholars and practitioners, allows users to search through more than 20.000 data points from 35 processes. For constitution-makers, such comparative data on how processes were designed and how they unfolded are of great benefit in understanding the impact of different process-design choices.
As Poet Farmer, we are proud and happy to have the privilege to work for International IDEA, and thereby, even if it’s just a little bit, help spread democracy and make the world a better place for us all.
