The Election Commission of India has set up the India International Institute of Democracy & Election Management (IIIDEM) as its advance training and resources wing.
Springing from the realization of modern India’s founding fathers and constitutions makers that free, fair, credible and professionally managed elections are the bedrock of democracy, IIIDEM is an initiative of the Commission for fulfilling its high aspiration on democracy and election management.
The ECI established the India International Institute of Democracy and Election Management (IIIDEM) in June 2011.
The establishment of IIIDEMstems from the realization of modern India’s founding fathers and constitution architects that free, fair credible and professionally managed elections form the bedrock of a vibrant democracy.The Institute is an instrument for the ECI to continually keep its tools of election management and democracy sharp, ready, and up-to-date.
Presently, the IIIDEM is housed in the premises of the ECI. The development of a full-fledged campus of the Institute is underway at Dwarka (Delhi) just 5 kms away from the Indira Gandhi International Airport.
