Training Seminar for International Electoral Observers
Module I: 7 - 9 November 2016
Module II: 10 - 12 November 2016
Deadline for early bird registration: 16 September 2016
Deadline for registration: 7 October 2016
Open and legitimate elections are the indispensable foundation for sustainable development and an effective democracy. Actions supporting the right to participate in genuine elections can play a major role in sustaining peace, security and conflict prevention. Support takes the form of electoral assistance projects and election observation missions. This requires skilled and trained observers.
The two modules are devoted to those applicants with no experience in election observation or to those observers who have participated to a maximum of two missions as short term observers.
Lectures are conceived for an audience of graduates mainly in Law, Political Sciences, Economics, Sociology, Philosophy, Anthropology or similar who want to address international election observation from a multi-disciplinary approach that will be useful in further engagements on the field.
All courses will be held in English. It is, therefore, essential that all participants understand and speak English fluently.
Enrolment fee for each module amounts to € 450,00 with no accommodation or € 600,00 with accommodation for 3 nights.
Enrolment fee for both modules amounts to € 750,00 with no accommodation or € 1000,00 with accommodation for 6 nights.
