International Electoral Observers
Open 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. Support takes the form of electoral assistance projects and election observation missions 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. The training has received the patronage of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Italy, Czech Republic and Spain, the support of European External Action Service (EEAS) and the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), thus reinforcing its already well established international recognition and validating its value for actual fieldwork.
We have designed a brand new online edition of the course that offers selected participants a very rewarding, engaging and challenging experience in distance learning education.
