Erasmus+ Cooperation Partnership for higher education


M.O.R.D.O.R. is a Erasmus+ project, co-funded by the European Union focusing on improving general education on authoritarianism and to prepare recommendations for EU foreign policy stakeholders regarding democracy support.

This project has two main goals. First, it aims to improve and strengthen the study and education of dictatorships worldwide by creating an encyclopedia and other didactic materials.
Second, it plans to make recommendations for EU foreign policy, concerning its democracy support strategies, capabilities and vision. We also develop smaller reports, info-graphics and analysis on EU democracy promotion activities.
