Improving Electoral Practices: Case Studies and Practical Approaches

Calls for the integrity of elections urge governments and international actors to attach importance to the professionalism of electoral management bodies, the regulation of political finance and the promotion of equal participation and representation of women and marginalized groups. Measures aimed at necessary reforms most often entail not just carefully planned policy initiatives but also the political will to implement these changes. This publication looks closely at initiatives by eight countries to realize these measures. Through the lens of the unique experiences of each country, lessons learned and practical approaches are highlighted as a reference for policymakers, particularly for those coming from countries in democratic transition.
