Welcome to The European Centre for Electoral Support (ECES)

The European Centre for Electoral Support is a non-profit private foundation headquartered in Brussels with African regional offices in Antananarivo, Madagascar and Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. 

ECES promotes sustainable democratic development through the provision of advisory services and operational support in favour of electoral stakeholders, including electoral management bodies and civil society organisations. The scope of ECES work comprises parliamentary support, research, policy recommendations, technical support and leadership development. Capacity-enhancing activities lie at the core of ECES work and are provided through peer reviews, exchanges of experiences, south-south collaboration and sharing of best practices in the field of electoral support, under the guiding principals of inclusiveness and knowledge. 

ECES implements its activities and projects with the aim of ensuring sustainability, efficiency and local ownership taking into account national and regional socio-political environments as well as short-, mid- and long term impact of its work. ECES, through the integration of the latest research within the democratic- and electoral field and promotion of dialogue in its projects, aims to support the development of regional, national and local capacity in leadership and conflict management and by doing so, encourage inclusive and consensual democratic transition and consolidation.
