Foundation for Parliamentary Democracy

The Foundation for the Parliamentary Democracy is a registered, charitable organisation that raises money for FMA activities that promote parliamentary democracy and good governance in Europe and in emerging democracies around the world.  Virtually all funds contributed to the Foundation go directly to the “EP to Campus” programme.

The EP to Campus programme allows Universities to benefit from the expertise and experience of former Members of the European Parliament who will share their insights into how the EU institutions really work and what are the factors shaping EU decision-making.

Goal & Missions

The FPD was formally recognised by royal decree on 30 August 2013. The aim of the Foundation, as detailed in the Statutes, is to strengthen and develop parliamentary democracy by drawing on the European parliamentary experience of members of the European Parliament Former Members Association (FMA). The Foundation will strengthen the FMA programmes, namely the “EP to Campus” Programme and democracy support initiatives , by devising fundraising strategies to support concrete projects.
