Election observation is a hotly debated issue in contemporary international relations and in political science. It is seen by donor-countries and the international community as a means to enhance democratization, but has been controversial with regard to the 'mandates' of the observers, the cases of its misappropriation by authoritarian governments and its masking of other donor-country interests.
