The course by deepening the technical and theoretical aspects of the election observation missions aims at providing participants with a practical methodological approach and will provide useful skills valuable in any election observation context and mission worldwide.

The course will introduce students to election observation “from theory to practice” starting with introductory remarks followed by lectures in plenum on the history of electoral observation, international legal standards, observation methodologyand missions functioning. 

Work groups, case studies and simulations will actively engage the participants who will look closely into all different steps of an electoral observation mission, from the exploratory phase to selection procedures through its internal functioning, the relations with national authorities, including the electoral management bodies, the local stakeholders and the political actors involved into the electoral cycle and security issues.
