The Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies (WCED) promotes scholarship to better understand the conditions and policies that foster the transition from autocratic rule to democratic governance, past and present. Initially focusing on transitions in Europe and Eurasia, it will subsequently expand its scope to other emerging democracies across the globe.

Gifts to the Emerging Democracies Strategic Fund support student, faculty, and postdoctoral fellow research on democracy and autocracy worldwide, as well as programming that enhances interdisciplinary knowledge about, and public engagement with, emerging democracies.
