Welcome to The Center for Eastern European Democracy (CEED)

CEED is dedicated to a single idea: promoting Western-European style, liberal democracy in Eastern Europe. Its purpose is to help mobilize leaders who seek to build democratic institutions and implement democratic systems of government in the countries of Eastern Europe.

News, Resources, and Developments

As a research and development center, CEED mobilizes, informs, finances and provides advisors to help CEED members from the countries of Eastern Europe promote democratic development, including supporting and building institutions that will advance such development.

Outreach and Direct Action

CEED works to create an “ideas without borders” movement, by promoting “person-to-person grassroots action” focused directly on Eastern European leaders.

 

To that end, it identifies and connects with leaders, to hold meetings and exchanges to cultivate an inter-national dialogue, involving a comparative analysis of country progress and the study of the principles of liberal democratic nation-building.

The concept of this initiative is to create an “ideas without borders” movement, coordinated by a center committed to “direct person-to-person grassroots action” focused directly on Eastern European leaders, rather than preparing academic papers or policy memos.

To that end, it will identify the names of and connect with leaders, to attend meetings and exchanges organized by CEED to cultivate an inter-national dialogue, involving a comparative analysis of country progress and the study of the principles of liberal democratic nation-building.

Diagnostics and Data Analysis

The Center collects data on Eastern Europe which it publishes on its website creating a yearly review of each Eastern European country’s standing, comparatively speaking, in the world, and in the Eastern European region. Resources permitting, it also publishes a meta data summary of the standing of the countries in Eastern Europe, as well as the standing of Eastern Europe as a region compared to other regions in the world.

Advocacy and Investigative Journalism

The Center propagates its core beliefs through social media into Eastern European countries and serves as a fact checking organization to target and correct misleading news and information about Eastern Europe. Resources permitting, it explores potential areas of cooperation in the field of defense, cyber-security, anti-asymmetrical warfare, alternatives to economic blackmail and anti-corruption practices. The Center investigates matters of concern in Eastern Europe and seeks to expose corruption, violations of human rights and official misconduct, focusing on those countries that are the hardest to access first.

Social Action and Networking

From time to time, the center will provide leadership and effective communication training, particularly to students from Eastern Europe studying at colleges and universities in the West, and also will select leaders to invite from Eastern Europe in the form of seminars and workshops.
