EED launches 2019 Annual Report

24 March 2020

This year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the European Endowment for Democracy is launching our 2019 Annual Report online

In 2019, EED supported 260 new initiatives in the regions where we operate, and there was a total of 440 ongoing grants during the year.

This year’s report provides an overview of EED’s work during the past year, supporting activists, independent media and human rights defenders in the European neighbourhood and beyond. It features the stories of many of these brave people, and of their individual struggles, their creativity, persistence and moral courage.

This 2019 Annual Report was scheduled to be presented to both the Political and Security Committee of the European Union (PSC) and the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament (AFET). Both these presentations have now been postponed to a later date.
