Electing Peace: Violence Prevention and Impact at the Polls examines election violence prevention and assesses the impact of prevalent prevention practices as applied in five recent elections in Honduras, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malawi, and Moldova. Through these case studies and comparative research, the authors evaluate the impact of prevention programming on the level of violence.
"This deftly edited volume focuses on five electoral democracies: Honduras, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malawi, and Moldova. During their most recent election cycle, all five countries displayed similar risk levels but experienced differing levels of electoral violence. Through these case studies and comparative analysis, the authors assess the impact of prevention efforts on the levels of violence and derive lessons learned that can be applied in other electoral contexts."John Taylor, Midwest Book Review
