The European Commission’s Methodological Guide on Electoral Assistance is part of the ongoing effort to place electoral assistance more firmly within the framework of democratic development and to become a pillar of the support to governance. The Guide develops the strategic operational framework in the field of electoral assistance, in order to rationalize and make the EC interventions more homogeneous, effective and in harmony with overall EU objectives. This Guide was prepared to offer all EC staff and others whose work requires specific knowledge of particular EU electoral assistance issues, a tool to assist them with the policy and strategic framework in this field, issues and entry points for activities, as well as resources for their formulation and implementation.
