Elections are central to many contemporary post-conflict accords, but poorly timed elections may have negative consequences for the consolidation of both peace and democracy. Benjamin Reilly examines key issues of: electoral timing, including how soon to hold elections following hostilities; whether to sequence national and local polls; and which models of electoral system and administration are most appropriate in post-conflict environments.
