La promozione dei valori democratici è importante per uno Stato che intenda essere inclusivo. La partecipazione a pieno titolo di tutta la popolazione aumenta le possibilità di uno sviluppo equilibrato che vada a beneficio di tutti. Limita inoltre la corruzione e gli abusi di potere, riducendo, in definitiva, il rischio di frustrazione e scontri politici. La promozione della democrazia è una delle priorità della politica estera svizzera. 

I processi di democratizzazione stanno particolarmente a cuore alla DSC. Il suo obiettivo è favorire la partecipazione della popolazione e un operato dei governi all’altezza delle loro responsabilità. La partecipazione a pieno titolo alla vita politica di diversi gruppi della popolazione e il loro coinvolgimento in tutte le questioni che hanno un impatto sull’esistenza quotidiana consentono di tenere conto di una pluralità d’interessi ampliando la legittimazione dei processi politici e il senso di corresponsabilità in fase di attuazione. Altri principi fondamentali in democrazia sono la divisione dei poteri e il controllo, l’obbligo di rendiconto, l’uguaglianza giuridica e lo Stato di diritto.

La Svizzera sostiene le istituzioni e i processi democratici. Appoggia l’interazione delle diverse forze democratiche che influiscono sul sistema politico e possono così rafforzarsi reciprocamente, attribuisce particolare importanza alla promozione dell’uguaglianza di genere e alla parità di diritti nonché alla protezione delle fasce più vulnerabili della popolazione. Opera inoltre con grande consapevolezza politica, sostiene soluzioni adeguate al contesto e costruisce su quanto già esiste, basandosi su valori democratici e non su modelli prestabiliti.

La democratizzazione è importante per uno sviluppo inclusivo e sostenibile, ma rappresenta anche un obiettivo in sé, in quanto garantisce il rispetto dei diritti civili e politici ed è il presupposto per la tutela di altri diritti fondamentali sul piano sociale, economico o culturale. Può infine contribuire a disinnescare conflitti violenti.
