The Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) was established in the United Kingdom in
1997, and registered in Nigeria in 1999, as an independent, not-for-profit, research training,
advocacy and capacity-building organisation. The purpose was to mobilise global opinion and
resources for democratic development and provide an independent space to reflect critically on
the challenges posed to the democratisation and development processes in West Africa. Our goal
is to serve as the ultimate catalyst in the transformation of the West African sub-continent into an
integrated, economically vibrant and democratically governed community that assures holistic
security to the population and is capable of permanent peaceful conflict management.
