1. EIUC Training for International Electoral Observers. The European 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 23-25 November 2015, provides an introduction to international observation theory and legal standards and highlights the quantitative observation of the short term observers (STOs). The second module, held from 26-28 November 2015, introduces the participants to 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 intended 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. The deadline for applications is 30 October 2015.
