Project In Brief

IFES’ Ukraine Electoral Law Reform program works closely with civil society partners, engaging local organizations and the broader public in dialogue about electoral reform. The program attempts to bring election laws and practices in compliance with international best practices, as well as European and international norms through formal and informal review of draft legislation; monitoring the implementation of legislation; advocating for transparent processes; and strengthening the capacity of electoral officials.


Currently, the program is focusing efforts on long-term objectives in election-law reform, civil society participation and building the capacity of the Central Election Commission (CEC) to deliver credible, competent elections.
