An independent academic study founded in 2012, the Electoral Integrity Project addresses three questions:
How and when do elections fail- throughout the electoral cycle?
What are the consequences of failed elections, such as for security, accessibility and trust?
And what can be done to mitigate these problems, based on academic evidence?
The Electoral Integrity Project produces innovative and policy-relevant research comparing elections worldwide. The project is currently directed by Dr. Holly Ann Garnett and Professor Toby S. James, and is housed at the Royal Military College of Canada/Queen’s University and the University of East Anglia. It was founded in 2012 by Professor Pippa Norris and originally based at Harvard University and the University of Sydney.
