Due to the rapid increase in new democratic states and countries around the world in recent years, the number of elections worldwide has increased dramatically. However, there have been few formal opportunities available for comprehensive professional development in election administration.
In response to this, the International Institute of Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC), the United Nations Election Assistance Division (UNEAD), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and IFES developed the BRIDGE Project (BRIDGE stands for Building Resources in Democracy, Governance and Elections). While the focus was still on elections it was designed to put elections in context of governance and democracy.
BRIDGE was designed to give people new to the field of electoral administration a comprehensive introduction to their work, to offer experienced officials new insights into the principles underlying their tasks, and to inform those outside the field about the key challenges that arise in conducting elections.
Bite was commissioned by the AEC to design and develop all visual communications collateral relating to the BRIDGE project which included a number of manuals with an extensive set of modules. All BRIDGE collateral was also translated into a number of languages.
