Electoral Violence

This Working Group is a space for those working on electoral violence to share information and best practices and develop collective strategy and advocacy. Most electoral projects are short term and only focus on the immediate election timeline and threats of violence in a particular country during this period. The Electoral Violence Working Group will focus on best practices and advocacy for the long-term prevention of electoral violence.


As the causes of electoral violence are diverse, organizations with a potential stake in this Working Group would be those providing electoral assistance, conflict mediation, victims’ services, marginalized groups, and media programming.


Tcreativehe Electoral Violence Working Group is co-hosted by AfP member Creative International.



The Electoral Violence Working Group is co-hosted by The United States Institute of Peace.



The Electoral Violence Working Group is co-hosted by The Department of State Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations.
