Deepening Democracy: A Strategy for Improving the Integrity of Elections Worldwide

In 2010, International IDEA and the Kofi Annan Foundation convened a group of distinguished experts and leaders to form the Global Commission on Elections, Democracy, and Security, which presented its landmark report in 2012. This report identified several causes of electoral instability and made recommendations to address these issues, which in turn lead to the establishment of the Kofi Annan Foundation’s Electoral Integrity Initiative. The Initiative works to address the political challenges that undermine elections, as detailed in the recent publication of an updated summary of the Deepening Democracy report.
