The European Democracy Study Center is an independent center for academic research focusing on various aspects of modern democracy in Europe, as well as a development of its main institutions and components. The emphasis in the currently existing research programs of the Center is on the history of the development of democracy in Europe, its ideology, and controversial points in its development. Our center was founded in 2008 by virtue of the initiative of specialists involved in the political history of Europe, the development of democracy, national minorities and human rights. From the first years of the development, specialists of the Center have been studying the national policies of governments of several European countries, the history of the formation of a democratic structure in Europe, relations between Western European countries with developed democracy and Eastern Europe with a post-Soviet system. For 10 years, the Center’s employees have demonstrated an objective assessment of a few topical research issues of the scientific world and have earned high scores from their colleagues due to the independent nature of research and political neutrality, which is a necessary and sufficient condition for any research Center. Despite the general theoretical direction for research, scientists of the Center do not keep away from the most burning issues of modern Europe, including such threats as counterterrorism, international delinquency by a number of European countries, and interference into elections, which are the main threats to the existence of democracy on the continent.

There are few significant essentials in the development of our Center:

2008 – the foundation of the Center;

2009 – the creation of the website, office and library;

2010 – first conference in Brussels dedicated to democracy in Europe;

2011 – the beginning of the program for the study of national minorities of EU;

2012 – the beginning of the program of terrorism studying;

2013 – the start of work of the publishing house of the Center;

2014 – the start of the study program of the Jewish communities of Europe;

2015 – the start of the program of studying the methodological foundations of European democracy;

2016 – the start of the program for studying the development of democracy in Eastern Europe;

2017 – the beginning of the program of lobbyism studying and its role in the development of democracy;

2018 – the beginning of Silver Lion Fellowship program;

2019- launched program study of Political Philosophy of the EU
