Elections and electoral politics

Elections and electoral politics

Election studies provide the basis for documenting and understanding how political culture in the region is evolving, and also for assessing the impact and effectiveness of electoral system reform and its influences upon political culture, including money politics and women’s political participation. Through the PRP, DPA is building on its extensive cross-regional research on elections and providing direct insight into the motivations and experiences of candidates and voters. Our research is directly relevant to electoral management bodies and donors supporting electoral management in the region. It also contributes to our understanding of how elections shape the nature of government, governance, and political stability.
