Electoral justice is crucial to ensuring the success, fairness and credibility of the electoral process, which is the bedrock for a robust and legitimate democratic system.

On 2–3 May 2018, the Indonesian Election Supervisory Board (Bawaslu) and International IDEA hosted a Pilot Conference with key stakeholders to gather input to the drafting and prospective implementation of the draft Electoral Justice System Assessment Guide.

Developed by International IDEA, the Assessment Guide consists of a series of researchable questions regarding universal, organizing principles integral to the quality and robustness of a country’s electoral justice system.

Prior to the Pilot Conference, Bawaslu became the first electoral institution in the world to ‘road test’ the draft Assessment Guide, in order to assess the state of electoral justice in Indonesia, as well as its own strengths and weaknesses as an electoral management body.

The Pilot Conference therefore presented an opportunity for Bawaslu to report back on its self-assessment, and for International IDEA to gain valuable insights into how the Assessment Guide could be improved and adjusted to suit specific contexts.
