Type: Seminar 
Date: November 23, 2015
Location: Italy
Subject Fields: Human Rights


The Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC) is running a training seminar for International Electoral Observers from 23-28 November 2015. The course, structured in two modules, provides an introduction for civilian staff to the profession of election observers, with a complete theoretical and practical basic knowledge delivered to those considering election observation as a possible professional step in their career.
The first module, held from 23 to 25 November 2015, provides an introduction on the international observation theory and legal standards and highlights the quantitative observation of the short term observers (STOs). It will analyse the practical life of a STO from the selection procedure to the end of mission including the observation of the polls, the filling of the forms, the reporting system and the code of conduct.
The second module, held from 26 to 28 November 2015, introduces the participants to the long-term election observation by analysing in depth some of the aspects related to an international observation mission such as working relations, team-building, interviewing techniques and coordination of the STOs.
Lectures are conceived for an audience of graduates mainly in Law, Political Sciences, Economics, Sociology, Philosophy, Anthropology or similar, and will be held in English. It is, therefore, essential that all participants understand and speak English fluently.
The seminar will take place at the Monastery of San Nicolò, at the Lido of Venice.
Enrol by the 30 of September to receive a 10% Discount.
The deadline for application is set on 30 October 2015.
