ANFREL through its Asian Electoral Resource Center (AERC) introduces its latest publication “Electoral Challenges in Asia Today.” The book is a compilation of researches conducted by electoral experts from across 13 countries in Asia. It presents what are deemed to be the most pressing challenges to advancing electoral democracy in Asia over the last decade. It takes into account the unique political context of each of the 13 countries included in this analysis.
Despite the diversity in the region, the peoples and countries of Asia still have much in common both culturally and politically, and the chapters that follow demonstrate that they also face many of the same or similar challenges to holding free and fair elections. The aim of this compilation is to properly identify the challenges that hinder democratic progress in an effort to assist stakeholders and reform advocates, both at the national and international levels, to properly address them and take stock of the lessons learned from experiences across the region.
