NDI has collaborated with civil society organizations including the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) and the Democracy Sierra Leone (DSL) civic group coalition to promote issue-based political discourse and increase citizen involvement in the political process, including women, youth and other marginalized groups. NDI’s debates support for the 2018 elections builds upon its prior experience organizing debates in Sierra Leone for the 2007 presidential and legislative elections and 2008 local government elections.
