Transitional administrations are, by their nature, interim arrangements that envisage the eventual transfer of full responsibility for governance to local authorities. In some cases, no formal political structures exist or, if they do, international authorities may consider them inadequate because they are undemocratic, unrepresentative, or incapable of implementing international obligations. Looks at the political designs and objectives that international authorities have promoted or imposed and the instruments they have employed, including the holding of elections, in their efforts to establish democratic political institutions.
