Electoral Processes

Electoral Justice

An effective electoral justice system is a key element in the unfolding of a free, fair and genuine democratic process. Without a system to mitigate and manage inequality or perceptions of inequality, even the best management of an electoral process may lead to mistrust in the legitimacy of the elected government. International IDEA has developed several knowledge products on the topic including the  Electoral Justice: The International IDEA Handbook (2010), Electoral Justice Database (n.d), and the Electoral Justice System Assessment Guide (2019).
