This handbook is the result of ongoing thinking about the seminal role that professional training for media organizations and reporters can play in emerging democracies.

Elections are a flashpoint for media issues. This is when the relationships between reporters, governments and civil society actors come into sharper focus, and potentially, conflict. This handbook provides tools and information that can aid reporters and elections management bodies in providing citizens with the best information possible to make informed decisions at the polls.
