The ‘African Elections during the COVID-19 Pandemic’ project aims to produce and disseminate detailed, evidence-based, and context-specific recommendations to help ensure that upcoming elections can be conducted relatively safely in the
context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The project is funded by the UKRI GCRF/Newton Fund until August 2021.  Based at the University of Edinburgh’s Centre of African Studies, the research partner organisations are the Centre for
Democratic Development in Ghana; the Open University of Tanzania; and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI), working with Echelle in the Central African Republic. The project impact partners include The Carter Center, the Electoral
Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa (EISA), the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), the Royal African Society, and the Westminster Foundation for Democracy.
