Initiative and Referendum Institute Europe, IRI-Europe

IRI Europe provides news, analysis, facts and comment on all aspects of the initiative and referendum (I&R) process, one of the most powerful political trends in Europe at the beginning of the 21st century.

IRI Europe was founded in 2001 to become the premier European research and educational institute on direct democracy. Its mission is to provide non-partisan facts, news and analysis on the initiative and referendum for the whole of Europe.

Demopunk Net have collaborated with this organization translating to spanish the "Country Index on Citizen Lawmaking. 2002". This annual report rates degree of development of Direct Democracy in 32 europan countries, including a detailed list with valuable practical information.

We must point out spanish rating is too optimistic, and even worst, it includes some severe errors. Despite of Demopunk Net has notified them, editors have preferred to maintain the original redaction. Hopefully, next annual reports will correct this erroneous report about Spain.
