Clever People Can’t Remain Silent
In Indonesia, NIMD supports local Democracy Schools where young politicians and social activists are trained in democratic values and practices. The schools offer a unique venue to involve citizens in local politics, foster a new generation of democratic politicians, deepen Indonesian democracy.
Since 2004, Democracy Schools have been set up in five provinces. 350 students have successfully completed the one-year training course. New schools will be opened in ten more provinces.
The Democracy Schools are an initiative of the Jakarta-based Indonesian Community for Democracy (KID) with support of NIMD.
