The strength and success of democracies
of whatever type or extent rest
only on one trifling technical detail -
the election procedure.
Other things are of little import.
(Hose Ortega y Gasset)


The International expert Center for Electoral Systems (ICES) is a nonprofit non-governmental public organization set up by a group of highly qualified experts in the fields of law, political science, diplomacy and sociology, coming from the USA, Great Britain, Netherlands, Germany and Israel.
The ICES experts have a vast experience in political monitoring and management of electoral preparations and processes in different countries.

The ICES' main lines of activities are:

  • Research and analysis of legal systems of different countries in the area of electoral rights and election systems.

  • Monitoring political and civil processes in developing democracies.

  • Formulation of requirements for fair and transparent elections, free of ballot rigging, interference of governmental structures, ensuring that the media are free, and human rights and liberties are observed.

  • Development of toolkits for political monitoring, management of electoral preparations and conducting of election campaigns.

  • Monitoring of preparations for the elections and the voting.

    The Center organizes and sends its own missions of international observers to elections of different levels and joins other international missions; publishes the results of its research, articles and reports of its experts; arranges seminars and round table discussions on major issues of political monitoring and analysis of electoral systems.

    The ICES is open for a wide-ranging co-operation with representatives of governmental structures and political parties, international and national public associations, research centers and the media.
