Elections 2021-22

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, several countries and territories have held elections in the last year, with around 50 scheduled in the coming 12 months. While a variety of precautionary measures have enabled authorities to safely conduct elections from a health perspective, the pandemic continues to exacerbate political, economic, and social issues in many locations. Such grievances will shape elections and, in some countries, enhance the likelihood of unrest and violence.

This report lists the elections scheduled to take place in the coming 12 months, where we expect a particularly close race, or where there is a high likelihood of unrest, violence and/or conflict, as well as providing our recommendations to protect your people.
