What we do

Solidarity

The EPDE network engages beyond its membership with citizen election observers around the globe. We stand in solidarity with fellow democracy defenders and advocate for the right of citizens to exert public oversight over elections and democratic institutions.

Fighting Fake observation

Politically biased or ‘fake’ election observation aims at advancing interests of political forces by imitating credible election monitoring. EPDE identifies persons and networks engaged in this practice in our Fake Observers database and advocates for measures to curb this phenomenon.
