The Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD; Dutch: Nederlands Instituut voor Meerpartijendemocratie) is a democracy assistance organisation of political parties in the Netherlands for political parties in young democracies. NIMD supports joint initiatives of political parties to improve the functioning of multi-party democracies abroad.

Founded in 2000 by seven parties across the political spectrum (CDA, PvdA, VVD, Groenlinks, Democrats 66, Christen Unie and SGP), NIMD currently works with more than 150 political parties from 25 countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Eastern Europe.[1] Former Dutch minister of foreign affairs Ben Bot is chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Institute.
