International IDEA's Work - Electoral Issues
Professional Development of Electoral Administrators

As in any profession, those who conduct, administer and manage elections also need a set of standards to guide their conduct. The Code of Conduct for the Ethical and Professional Administration of Elections, emphasizes independence, transparency, accuracy and a service orientation.

This code is available in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese and will be published in Russian later this year (Publications).

The Institute has also embarked, in collaboration with the Australian Election Commission, upon an ambitious project of curriculum development based on the ACE project that will be used in the professional development of electoral administrators. A trial curriculum, funded by AusAID, is being piloted in East Timor in 2001.
