Title: Strengthening Electoral Integrity Through Election Management
My dissertation considers how the designs and practices of election management bodies (the agencies and government departments that are tasked with the technical administration of elections) are related to electoral integrity. While certain essential elements remain common to nearly all EMBs, the design and conduct of EMBs around the world can vary greatly. I consider how the variations in EMB designs and practices, from online information, communication with citizens, transparency, centralization and voting provisions, can influence electoral integrity.
