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. This requires skilled and trained observers.

Since 2012 the Global Campus has trained more than 400 short term observers through its onsite courses in Venice Lido. After the successful brand new online edition of February 2021, a second edition of the course will offer selected participants a new challenging experience in distance learning education.

Course leader

The course is an instructor-led training programme coordinated and tutored by Demetrio Lazagna, whose expertise will guide you throughout the various modules.

Target group

All participants willing to acquire practical skills useful for further engagements in the field as STO, as well as political experts, analysts, journalists, consultants, and researchers willing to deepen their knowledge on the functioning of an electoral observation mission from a multi-disciplinary approach, are encouraged to apply for the course.

Course aim

The aim of the course is to deepen theoretical and practical expertise on international election observation by providing participants with knowledge and practical skills that are applicable to the daily functioning of election observation missions, an asset in case of further applications as international observers. Knowledge of international standards, methodology and best practices will also be essential for those interested in developing and training a network of domestic observers.
