NORDEM is a civilian capacity provider specialising in human rights and support for democracy.

NORDEM recruits, trains and deploys qualified personnel to roughly 15 international organisations and operations that work in the field of human rights and democratisation. We support several international mechanisms and collaborate with a number of organisations that provide civilian capacity. In addition, we offer advice, support the transfer of experience and contribute to research. NORDEM's expertise covers such fields as good governance, democratic institutions, independence of the judiciary, judicial and legal reform, human rights, election observation and election assistance.
