Within the general promotion of democracy, the ICDT has focused its efforts on creating concrete and pragmatic goals. Through collecting and analysing data, organizing and hosting conferences, drafting and presenting reports, and, perhaps most importantly, by running field-projects in many transition countries, the ICDT has been able to compile the collective and individual experiences of peoples from all around Europe.
