An independent academic study founded in 2012, the Electoral Integrity Project addresses three questions:
When do elections meet international standards of electoral integrity?
What happens when elections fail to do so?
And what can be done to mitigate these problems?
Under the direction of Professor Pippa Norris and the distinguished International Advisory Board, the Electoral Integrity Project produces innovative and policy-relevant research comparing elections worldwide. The research team is based at the University of Sydney and Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.
