The Institute of Democratic Politics was founded in 1999 by a group of Conservative and Christian Democratic politicians, analysts, essayists, and scholars. From the outset, its principal concerns have been the strengthening of the centre-right ideology and public defense of conservative values in Lithuania. We aim to accelerate the political and civic maturity of the Lithuanian society and to promote democracy and development in the European neighbourhood, seeking to contribute to security and stability in the region. To this end, we organize national and international conferences, seminars, round table discussions, issue publications and conduct research. The Institute also belongs to the European Ideas Network of the EPP Group in the European Parliament and its long-standing cooperation partners include Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, Robert Schuman Foundation, International Republican Institute, and National Endowment for Democracy.
