Democracy, Rights, and Governance

EnCompass’ work in the area of democracy and governance focuses on strengthening the capacities of development organizations and government agencies to address participatory, stable, and inclusive governing processes and systems. 

We have helped clients design, evaluate, and implement programs on a variety of topics, including strengthening free media, increasing civic engagement, and preventing trafficking and child labor. Our support includes developing technical resources and providing technical assistance, documenting good and promising practices, conducting assessments and evaluations, designing and facilitating training curricula, and conducting research studies to support the development of democracy, rights, and governance.
