About India International Institute of Democracy and Election Management

Through efficient and scientific management of elections and electoral rolls, the Election Commission of India (ECI) has played a key role in strengthening the Indian democracy. Inspired by its vision on the philosophy of democracy as well as on the multifarious aspects of democratic ethos and operations, including most importantly, efficient and flawless delivery of free and fair elections, the ECI established the IIIDEM in June 2011.

The establishment of IIIDEM stems from the realization of modern India’s founding fathers and constitution architects that free, fair credible and professionally managed elections form the bedrock of a vibrant democracy. The Institute is an instrument for the ECI to continually keep its tools of election management and democracy sharp, ready, and up-to-date.
