Regional level

Through Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with Regional Economic Communities (RECs) EISA seeks to promote credible democratic elections on the continent.

National level

At national level capacity building of stakeholders, as well as of state structures is also undertaken; EISA works with electoral management bodies to reinforce epp2009review their capacity for the delivery of transparent, credible and peaceful elections, and strengthens the internal functioning of political parties to facilitate their efficacy as electoral actors, as well as their internal democracy and inclusivity. Political parties and civil society organisations are empowered to observe and assess electoral processes in a credible and professional manner and contribute to electoral reform efforts.

To facilitate these efforts field offices were opened for various lengths of time throughout the continent, while working with other countries utilising specialist departments.
