ACE Observation Portal
The NEEDS Project is cooperating with the ACE Electoral Knowledge Network and the Steering Committee of the Declaration of Principles Annual Meeting to develop an universal repository of international election observation missions' reports. This special project started following a request by the endorsing organisations of the Declaration of Principles on International Election Observation to create a unique online space where all international election observation reports could be easily stored, found and compared.
The ACE Observation Portal is online and being constantly updated - there are currently around 1,300 reports uploaded and the aim is to reach 2,000 by the end of 2012. Ultimately, the goal is to build a comprehensive electronic library covering all the documents ever produced by international observation missions since the year 2000.
