2010: UNDP – Elections and Conflict Prevention
The project on elections and conflict prevention was sponsored by the UNDP Oslo Governance Centre (OGC), Democratic Governance Group of UNDP's Bureau for Development Policy (BDP/DGG). It was led by Siphosami Malunga, former Governance and Conflict Advisor at OGC and currently Democratic Governance Practice Leader at the UNDP Sub-Regional Office for Eastern and Southern Africa, and Linda Maguire, Electoral Advisor at BDP/DGG. As one output of the project, this Guide on Elections and Conflict Prevention represents the culmination of a collaborative effort between BDP and the Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery (BCPR). This Guide was authored by a leading academic specialist, Timothy Sisk, of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver (USA), together with Chris Spies, a former UNDP Peace and Development Advisor in Guyana and presently an independent consultant to UNDP and other international organizations.
