As a global organization, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) welcomes international experts, including IFES staff, to share their knowledge and stories from the field at our headquarters. These events foster discussion and promote the exchange of ideas within the international development community. IFES also holds the annual Charles T. Manatt Democracy Awards Dinner to celebrate the work of individuals committed to freedom and democracy. Our flagship U.S. Election Program brings together election officials, parliamentarians and diplomats from around the world to observe and learn about the U.S. electoral system and discuss elections and voting from comparative international perspectives.
