The Carter Center’s Database of Obligations for Democratic Elections provides a catalogue of source quotes from treaties and other legal instruments; judicial decisions; decisions/recommendations from treaty supervisory committees; and handbooks and manuals. Its purpose is to assist election assistance providers, election observers and others in their efforts to utilise human rights obligations for assessing the quality of electoral processes. The material is arranged into an electronic database, searchable by a number of criteria.
