International Centre for Democratic Transition

The International Centre for Democratic Transition (ICDT) was established as an organisational unit with independent legal entity status under the supervision of the Board of Trustees of the Centre for Democracy Public Foundation. It performs the necessary tasks to achieve the goals of the Centre for Democracy Public Foundation according to the Deed of Foundation of the Public Foundation corresponding to the paragraph 74/B. § (3) of the Hungarian Civil Code.

The ICDT is a non-profit organization based in Budapest, Hungary which collects the experiences of recent democratic transitions and shares them with those who are determined to follow that same path. Instead of promoting democracy in general, the ICDT sets more concrete and pragmatic goals. The Centre strives to show how dozens of young democracies have made, and are making, the transition, so that those who set off on this difficult journey from dictatorship to democracy in the future may learn from the successes as well as from the failures.

The President of the International Centre for Democratic Transition is Ambassador Dr. István Gyarmati. Information about the activities and the implemented projects of the Centre is available on its website (www.icdt.hu).
