Project: Citizen Journalists for Free and Fair Elections in Georgia
Evaluation Date: April 2014
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The effort was primarily focused on exposing problems in the 2012 Georgia parliamentary elections but any impact beyond this was unlikely. In part, this was intentional as the grantee did not want to further inflame the politicized context by widely disseminating materials that showed violations primarily by one side. But it was also a result of the one-off nature and limited reach of the activities. Enlarging the concept beyond reporting of just violations and embedding the project within the broader electoral process and its democratic meaning could have made this a wider, lasting citizen journalism effort.
