Measuring Democracy: The Power of Data


On Thursday, May 27th, the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) hosted Measuring Democracy: The Power of Data’.

Featuring a presentation by the V-Dem Institute and panelists from the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), the International Republican Institute (IRI), and the National Democratic Institute (NDI), the discussion focused on how DRG practitioners can use data to support the design and implementation of effective assistance programs through strategic decision-making, context and risk analysis, program design, and evaluation.

This event is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through CEPPS. Established in 1995, CEPPS pools the expertise of three premier international organizations dedicated to democratic development: IFES, the International Republican Institute and National Democratic Institute.
