EISA opened an office in Madagascar in 2007 with a specific focus on encouraging greater participation by women in public life.
The office is currently working with university students from the Ankatso University (Antananrivo/Madagascar), to provide capacity building skills to university students to enable them to contribute to the promotion and encouragement of women to enter into decision-making processes in Madagascar.
EISA Madagascar also works closely with the Vondrona Miralenta ho an’ny Fampandrosoana (VMLF), an association of women supporting and working towards increased female representation in Malagasy political institutions. In February 2011 EISA expanded its scope of activities in Madagascar with the introduction of the Strengthening Electoral and Democratic Processes (SEDP) programme.
Electoral conflict management
EISA is implementing a joint conflict mediation and early warning programme in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Independent Electoral Commission for the Transition (CENI-T) in Madagascar aimed at preventing and mitigating incidents of violence that could erupt ahead, during and after the upcoming post-transitions elections.
Voter Sensitisation Manual
Ce manuel répond à un double besoin : mettre à la disposition des organisations de la société civile une boîte à outils leur permettant de conduire des activités de sensibilisation pour le vote avec un minimum de connaissances, de compétences et de professionnalisme. Il vise également à renforcer leurs capacités du point de vue méthodologique.
