Electoral observation missions

The aim of observation missions is to ensure the transparency of the process, to increase the trust of electors and to promote voter turnout by having the international community testify to the integrity of the electoral process.

The organization of such missions represents an immense electoral challenge. The missions may span several months and call on several hundred observers from dozens of different countries.
