BRIDGE stands for Building Resources in Democracy, Governance and Elections and is a modular professional development program with a particular focus on electoral processes. BRIDGE is a partnership of five leading organizations in the democracy and governance field: the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC), International IDEA, the International Foundation for Electoral System (IFES), the UN Electoral Assistance Division (EAD) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), who have jointly committed to developing, implementing and maintaining the most comprehensive curriculum and workshop package available, designed to be used as a tool within a broader capacity development framework. The BRIDGE Office is the central point of information for BRIDGE and is located in Canberra, Australia and hosted by the AEC. However, starting in 2015, discreet functions will be carried out by other BRIDGE partners in different locations.
The BRIDGE methodology combines participatory adult education techniques with a distinctive values-based approach. Rather than relying heavily on traditional lecturing, BRIDGE is focused on practical issues and is activity-based, with each module offering a range of activities designed to convey clearly identified key understandings, and to achieve specified learning outcomes. It reflects the insight that people learn best when they take responsibility for their own learning, and are faced with material that is relevant to them and presented in an innovative way. The BRIDGE curriculum currently comprises 24 modules on all aspects of election administration.
