The Paris Call Community on Countering Election Interference—an initiative co-championed by the Alliance for Securing Democracy, the Government of Canada, and Microsoft, in implementation of Paris Call principle #3—launched Multi-stakeholder Insights: A Compendium on Countering Election Interference at a virtual event on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.

Throughout 2020, the co-champions brought the global community together through the organization of multi-stakeholder workshops, each one addressing a critical topic related to preventing interference in electoral processes. During these workshops, key observations, ideas, and effective practices were collected from a diverse group of experts, practitioners, and stakeholders.

Based on what the co-champions heard and learned in these discussions, ASD, the Government of Canada, and Microsoft developed a compendium of good practices that offers election management bodies, governments, and other democratic stakeholders a useful resource to support their efforts to safeguard elections and democracy.
