Information Integrity to Sustain Peace during Electoral Processes

This report is dedicated to the first Sustaining Peace during Electoral Processes project research topic, which explores the prevention of election violence and its linkages to information integrity. The purpose of this report is to gain a better understanding of the pertinent dynamics and to bolster the design of programming to support the information ecosystem around elections. In aid of this, UNDP sought information through a number of channels, in a review of the relevant literature, a series of regional consultations, expert meetings and a survey. While it concludes there remains no single panacea to the ills that information pollution brings upon elections, it identifies a number of recommendations to facilitate information pollution programming around elections.
