Since 2010, ECES has developed a wide-ranging network of international regional and local implementing partnerships. Here we list the international, regional and local actors we have been collaborating with as well the Electoral Management Bodies (EMBs) that are part of networks of EMBs we have partnered with and such: African Union, Southern African Development Community, Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), Association of African Election Authorities (AAEA), Indian Ocean Community, Arab Networks of EMBs etc. ECES can currently count on a solid network of way over 100 partners.

Implementing partners are essential to further consolidate ECES' ambition strive to reach new highs within the field of electoral assistance and democratic support funded mainly by the EU and its member states in favor of beneficiaries countries of their development cooperation . In this context all partnerships have evolved by identifying an intersection of mutually shared interests, namely enhanced effectiveness, precision and overall performance of electoral administrators and electoral stakeholders conducting elections through a wide range of target activities that ECES and its partners are able to achieve by working together. The shared vision behind all  partnerships is thus to maximise the added value of each organisation in view to develop innovative and effective actions and strategies to deliver electoral support.
