Advancing Credible Elections Through Election Violence Monitoring & Mitigation

Mar 26, 2024


Bayelsa, Kogi, and Imo states, among others in Nigeria experiencing off-cy- cle governorship elections, held elections on November 11, 2023. Considering the historical disposition of the three states to electoral violence, KDI started a long-term monitoring and documenting of election related violence based on its broad knowledge of election security (pre-election Security Risk Assess- ment (ESRA) and the Nigeria Election Violence Education and Resolution (NEVER) methodology). This electoral violence monitoring and mitigation ef- fort aimed to establish a robust, multi-stakeholder electoral security frame- work that will track, document, and mitigate electoral violence before, during and after the 2023 Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi States off-cycle elections-ultimately establishing an early warning system and publishing disaggregated data to aid stakeholders' mitigation planning.
