Short description:
The organization supports the democratisation processes in Africa. This is based on a long-term commitment within the organisation to provide the needed assistance to whatever extent made possible by donor funding. Due the fact that political transitions are unpredictable and often volatile processes, it is not possible to establish in the early phase of cooperation exactly how long the interventions from AWEPA will be needed and what exact course they will take.

AWEPA works in close partnership with parliaments and the content of its cooperation is based on agreed needs assessments and activities such as workshops, training sessions and peer-learning events between European and Africa parliamentarians.
