With upcoming elections in 2013 scheduled for Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, and Togo, and forthcoming elections in 2014 and 2015 in Benin, Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria the need to ensure transparent and accountable elections that are intolerant of impunity is more dire than ever before.

The Institute has partnered the Foundation Centre to provide online learning resources and a database of grant giving institutions in the United States of America.
