Review of UK Electoral Assistance in the Context of Lessons learned and Best Practice

August 2008 to September 2009

The objective of this consultancy is to review UK (FCO and DFID) support in Sub-Saharan Africa, South and East Asia, the Middle East and Latin America towards free and fair elections over the last 10 years, placing this in the context of international electoral assistance and emerging lessons from best practice in different country contexts. The outputs will be a report of the findings and a draft of an update to the joint DFID-FCO 2003 guidance note “Elections and the Electoral Process: A Guide to Assistance”.
