duration 1 week
fee EUR 600

One of the available tools at the disposal of the International Community to support democratic institutions and inclusive elections in partner countries is the Electoral Technical Assistance. Such support goes beyond Election Day, and it concretely shapes into the reform in the medium- and long-term run promoting democratic values and enhancing beneficiary institutions' accountability, transparency, and efficiency.

With this newly designed training on Strengthening Political Processes through Technical Assistance, the Global Campus of Human Rights aims at channelling its vast expertise in the field of election observation, towards a more direct operational endeavour, providing a practical understanding of the technical assistance cycle through the professional expertise of its trainers.

Course leader

The Technical Assistance training course is coordinated by Demetrio Lazagna and tutored by various experts, whose plurennial experience in this field will guide participants throughout the various sessions.

Target group

The course addresses all participants who are interested in deepening their knowledge on the functioning of electoral technical assistance from a multi-disciplinary approach. It is specifically aimed at training staff who already has a background on international election observation and mission functioning, but who wants to focus more on the theoretical and practical elements of electoral technical assistance, and to remain updated on the contemporary challenges to the election management. This training will therefore benefit electoral observers, staff employed in Election Observation Missions as well as technical assistance beginners.

Course aim

The aim of the course is to deepen theoretical and practical expertise on electoral technical assistance by providing participants with knowledge and practical skills that are applicable to the daily functioning of technical assistance field missions.
