Regular, inclusive, transparent and legitimate elections are the indispensable foundation for sustainable development and 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 500 short term observers through its onsite courses in Venice Lido. After the successful online editions held in 2021, a new edition of the course will offer selected participants a new challenging experience in distance learning education.

Course leader

The Global Campus avails itself of a wide range of experts. In addition, among the pool of experts, presentations have been included by representatives of Ministry of Foreign Affairs who have given their patronage to the training course.

Target group

The course addresses all participants who are interested in deepening their knowledge on the functioning of an electoral observation mission from a multi-disciplinary approach. It is specifically aimed at training civilian staff in election observation missions at the start of their career (i.e. short term observers).

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.
