Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening
CEPPS has a 20-year track record of collaboration and leadership in democracy, human rights and governance support, learning from experience, and adopting new approaches and tools based on the ever-evolving technological landscape.
As mission driven, nonprofit democracy organizations, we differ from many development actors by maintaining long-term relationships with political parties, election management bodies, parliaments, civil society organizations and democracy activists.

Through our work, we:
Promote meaningful participation of all citizens in their political systems, including women, youth and other traditionally marginalized groups.
Harness the comparative advantages of media and technology to promote citizen understanding and engagement and transparent political competition.
Support meaningful transition processes that establish positive precedents for effective democratic governance.
Promote the integrity of elections as a sustainable vehicle for peacefully and democratically choosing leaders.
Facilitate the ability of elected political actors to fulfill their responsibilities to citizens through better governance practices.
Promote competitive and representative multi-party political systems.
Ensure respect for the application of impartial legal frameworks and compliance by political actors.
Join CEPPS in a virtual conversation with representatives from three local CSOs working to empower persons with disabilities in political life. In this webinar, CEPPS will explore: barriers to and opportunities for participation for persons with disabilities in North Macedonia, Mongolia, and Mexico; the unique ways in which each organization has worked to eliminate challenges; and adaptations to each organization’s work in response to the additional challenges facing persons with disabilities in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
