This chapter outline a conceptual framework for assessing election integrity based on international obligations. It provides a background and rationale for the framework and illustrates how the approach is being applied by election observation missions, drawing upon the Carter Center's work during the 2012 Egyptian presidential election. The chapter concludes that objective assessments of electoral integrity require a broad consensus about its definition and components, and that a multitude of sources in international law exist upon which to build agreement.
