The five BRIDGE partners are the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC), International IDEA, International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Electoral Assistance Division (UNEAD).
The BRIDGE partners are currently in the process of updating the BRIDGE Curriculum, refining the existing modules and developing BRIDGE Version 3 (V3).
