Who We Are
Vision: Democracy for a better future.
Mission: Together we build democracies that deliver for all.
As the global leader in democracy promotion, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) advances good governance and democratic rights by:

- Applying field-based research to improve the electoral cycle
Since 1987, IFES has worked in over 145 countries – from developing democracies, to mature democracies.
