The European Centre for Electoral Support has been implementing several Electoral Assistance activities in Ethiopia, these projects were involved in various aspects of the electoral process.
Namely:

  • The European Response to Electoral Cycle Support in Ethiopia (EURECS Ethiopia) project aimed to contribute to increased transparency and credibility on the electoral process and to instill a higher degree of public trust in the National Electoral Board of Ethiopia (NEBE);
  • Prevention, Mitigation and Management of Election-related Conflicts and Potential Violence (PEV Ethiopia) project aimed to prevent, mitigate and manage conflicts that may arise during the electoral cycle by assisting non-state actors (NSA) in addressing root causes of political and election-related violence and conflict;
  • EURECS PLUS aimed to support NEBE in procurement and awareness raising of COVID 19 related issues for an effective electoral management and leadership in Ethiopia over the 2020-2025 electoral cycle.
  • ECES Sub-Granting Scheme to CECOE aimed to support CECOE to train and deploy domestic election observers as well as Voter Education support during the 2021 & 2022 elections.


This unique multi-dimensional approach in Ethiopia has allowed ECES to cover all elements of the electoral cycle while partnering with multiple stakeholders. This has allowed for an effective execution that will have a long-lasting impact beyond the project's lifespan.
