BiRD (Bureau for Institutional Reform and Democracy) was founded in 1998 as a limited liability company in Munich, Germany, where we are still headquartered. Aspiring to make a real difference and convinced that properly functioning democratic institutions are at the core of societal and individual well-being, development and fulfillment, our founders laid their focus on the then still new governance sector. During the early days of the company, we implemented mostly short-term technical assistance (TA) projects, but soon started partnering for and even leading long-term TA projects commissioned by the European Commission. And still today, we engage in strengthening democratic institutions, promotion of the rule of law, support to civil society – to only name a few – while always extending our fields of activities in the various sectors, we work in. Next to our TA projects, a second pillar has always been central to our work: conducting evaluations, analyses and studies in various development-related sectors for NGOs, public institutions and multilateral organisations.
