ERIS Long-Term Observer Training Course

April 2012

From 30 March to 1 April 2012 ERIS ran its bi-annual Long Term Election Observation Course at the Ability Media Centre, London. Led by Carlo Accame and Hannah Roberts. 19 participants from across Europe took part in interactive sessions on the role of long-term observers in the election observation process. There were also contributions from the European Union (EU) and Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the two main recruiters of election observers, on the questions of why and how to observe. The calibre and prior experience of participants was very high and we hope that they will get the opportunity to put their training into action on a mission in the near future.
