Think tanks: why and how to support elections

Democratic elections facilitate the exchange of ideas in a country and are an important moment for public engagement in political processes.

This publication seeks to inspire and inform think tanks to act. It is a collection of stories and practical advice from organisations around the world that have influenced their country’s electoral process in some way.
