The DEMAS platform has been active in the promotion of democracy and human rights since 2008. Its primary objectives include creating a working environment for sharing information and know-how of member organizations, the creation of joint project opportunities and developing skills and abilities of its member organizations.

Like in previous years were main activities of the DEMAS platform focused at capacity-building, networking (establishing new and strengthening existing contacts) and advocacy. Especially advocacy activities aimed at stakeholders both in the Czech Republic and abroad played crucial role in the finished project as they help in achieving of better results in the field of democracy promotion and civil society support. Activities considering capacity building were not aimed at DEMAS only but also at the EU – Russia Civil Society Forum which was closely affiliated to DEMAS in 2012 and 2013.
