On 10–12 July 2012 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD), in partnership with the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) and the Tanzania Centre for Democracy (TCD), convened a conference on the legal framework governing political parties and party financing.

The conference brought together senior representatives of political parties from the countries in which NIMD is active in Africa, who were joined by experts and practitioners from both within and outside Africa.

The conference provided a unique forum for NIMD, International IDEA and their partners to revisit the question of the reform of party financing. It was designed in such a way that it offered political parties a maximum opportunity to share their own experiences from the praxis while at the same time benefiting from the input of a limited number of specialized experts.

This report is a summary of the conference, featuring case studies from Burundi, Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda.
