An independent academic study, 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 Pippa Norris, the research team is based at the University of Sydney and Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
