Where Does European Democracy Support Funding Go?

Learn more about our European Democracy Support Funding dataset and how you can explore it through our interactive datatool. The dataset captures core democracy support from different European Institutions, European Union member states and Switzerland, Norway and the United Kingdom, which we refer to as European donors.

First, you can look into spending flows, where you can review the different disbursements going from donors to recipient regions or countries, and the categories this aid falls into. Here you can open each donor card and see how this support has evolved through time, the financial flows to each category and its corresponding recipients. At the end of each page, you can also find how this support is delivered. Do not forget to use the timeline filter to explore different years in more detail.
