The creation of the Parliamentary Forum for Democracy (PFD) was an initiative of the Community of Democracies (CoD).
The main priorities of the Parliamentary Forum for Democracy are:
· To stand in solidarity with democrats struggling for freedom around the world;
· To strengthen democratic parliaments, particularly in new and emerging democracies; and
· To advocate in legislatures and other national and regional bodies for greater and more effective democracy assistance.
The Parliamentary Forum for Democracy has its roots in discussions between various international democracy promotion organizations and members of parliament from a variety of countries.
