On the occasion of the International Day of Democracy, the European Union reaffirms its commitment towards democracy as a fundamental right of every human being. Every woman and every man has to be free to participate to the political, economic and social life of her or his country.

Democracy can only function if participation and trust between democratic state institutions, governments and citizens are guaranteed.
