The Eurasia Democracy Initiative (EDI) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of democracy, rule of law and interethnic tolerance in post-Communist transitional societies of Eastern and Central Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. EDI seeks to deepen the relations between these countries and the United States by stressing the importance of democracy and respect for human rights as integral to their development and international standing. EDI believes that frank and active dialogue between countries in transition and the rest of the international community is the most effective way to achieve lasting stability, peace and security in this region. EDI works in Europe and the United States and actively cooperates with local civil society actors.
