Electoral Integrity

"Presidential Elections" (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0) by UNAMID PhotoHolding elections has become a global norm, even in autocracies; at the same time, mounting evidence suggests that flawed or failed elections pose serious risks for political stability, legitimacy, and participation. My research investigates the drivers of electoral malpractice, making use of the Perceptions of Electoral Integrity expert surveys and bespoke data collected in my dissertation fieldwork.
