ELECTOR is the Election Observation Research Network, based at the University of Birmingham. It fosters a constructive and mutually supportive relationship between civil society groups, election experts, and international and domestic observers, enabling those working at the coal face of election observation to shape the direction of new academic research. For more information and election-related resources, please visit, where you can find a report of the first meeting and policy briefs on key issues of concern to the community.

The Centre for Elections, Democracy, Accountability and Representation (CEDAR) is a new research and policy centre established by the University of Birmingham, and the home of ELECTOR. CEDAR builds on the remarkable strengths of the University in advancing our understanding of the challenges facing democracy. These include cutting-edge research on democratic theory and practice, political parties and area studies, high level knowledge exchange partnerships with governments and leading think tanks and civil society organisations around the world, and in-depth expertise on elections, electoral manipulation, and how to safeguard the polls. CEDAR is led by Nic Cheeseman, the Professor of Democracy, along with two Deputy Directors, Licia Cianetti and Tim Haughton.
