ERIS Trainings in September

October 2011

ERIS election observation trainers Carlo Accame and Hannah Roberts are running a course for 25 STO candidates for IrishAID in Dublin from 6-7 September, in conjunction with DTALK. The participants are drawn from the Irish civil service and the focus of the course is on preparing the participants for deployment on OSCE election observation missions particularly during 2012 when Ireland will Chair the OSCE.

ERIS LTO training will follow from 14-16 September, when 16 candidates will gather at ERIS offices in London. The participants come from across Europe including the UK, Ireland, Latvia, Austria, France and Spain. Most have prior STO experience or other election-related experience. The training will cover a broad range of themes and skill sets and will include practical exercises, group work, role play sessions and a mission simulation designed to test not only factual knowledge but also aptitude, flexibility and interaction with other participants.

The next ERIS training course will take place in March/April 2012. To receive the announcement about this and other election observation opportunities, sign up to our election observation mailing list.
