Election &
Governance

West Africa has made notable gains in the areas of elections and governance over the last couple decades. However these democracies are still young and fragile, positioned at various levels of evolution. Several key challenges still remain, including disputed elections, weak oversight institutions and inadequate participation in public affairs. OSIWA works with established national organizations, including such partners as the Centre for Democratic Development in Ghana and Nigeria, and key regional bodies, such as the Electoral Assistance Unit and ECONEC. Our main goals include (among others) promoting inclusive governance, improving the quality and conduct of elections, increasing the effectiveness of parliaments and reducing the impact of drug trafficking on governance.
