ELECTIONS

Given their importance in nascent democracies and in countries in transition, elections represent one of KADEM’s main areas of action. In this regard, KADEM works with civil society and with governmental actors across the region to support free and fair elections. With its technical approach, KADEM, aided by prominent experts from all over the region, develops a number of initiatives and activities on election monitoring, legislative drafting and political finance control. Most of these contributions and actions are documented in a number of publications and other educational tools.

Monitoring elections in Arab countries is important to guarantee free, fair and transparent electoral processes. Nevertheless, many countries of the region still deny or limit the monitoring role of local and international civil society institutions. In this respect, and in order to empower these institutions and improve their contribution, KADEM works on developing expertise in terms of election monitoring, through an active role with civil society and also through interaction with governmental election authorities. 

In partnership with UNDEF and MEPI, KADEM has implemented a number of activities in Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon, Sudan and Tunisia.

After the legislative elections of 2011, and given the influence of finances on political life, KADEM has developed a program to raise public awareness of the need to establish an efficient financial oversight and to monitor the election process, in addition to empowering the different stakeholders to monitor electoral finances.

KADEM continues to support the election process in Tunisia, through training and capacity-building seminars, workshops and study visits to different actors and through publications and tutorials.

After the launch of the process of transition in Tunisia, KADEM got involved in the electoral process of the National Constituent Assembly, through participating in legislative reform (discussions on the Electoral Law and on the Law on Political Parties), and also through providing capacity-building to most of the parties involved in the election monitoring process.  KADEM has also focused on political finance control and on providing capacity-building to political party delegates during the 2014 legislative and presidential elections.

Aware of the importance of joint action, Al Kawakibi Democracy Transition Center (KADEM) and the Lebanese Association for Democratic Elections (LADE) developed, in 2009, a joint initiative for the establishment of an Arab Working Group on Election Monitoring (AWGEM) composed of a number of lawyers and experts in electoral issues from eight Arab countries.

The Working Group monitored elections in Tunisia in 2011 and 2014. The initiative soon gained momentum and developed into an independent network called the “Arab Network for Democratic Elections” (ANDE).

KADEM is a technical, non-governmental regional organization specialized in knowledge transfer, expertise-sharing and capacity-building in the field of democratic transition.  It is founded on the principle of partnership among organizations and experts across the Arab region and beyond.KADEM was set up in Amman, Jordan, in June 2006. Following the Revolution in Tunisia, KADEM was registered in July 2011 as an association subject to Tunisian law.

KADEM seeks to enhance the contribution of Arab civil societies to democratic transition processes, thereby strengthening the foundations of national sovereignty, and promoting good governance based on social justice, economic development, gender equality, and broad popular participation in decision-making, as well as on the principles of rule of law, transparency, protection of human rights and individual/public freedoms, and peaceful alternation of power.
