EPD together with the European Centre for Electoral Support will present their lessons learned from having supported various electoral and democratic processes over the last 5 years at the EU Development Days 2016.
From their collective experience, a specific and distinct European model to electoral and democracy support has emerged: “A European Response to Electoral Cycle Support“. It represents a strategic approach to electoral support in third countries, aiming at promoting peace and stability by working around political and electoral cycles with all stakeholders.
Having delivered democracy and electoral support worldwide, ECES and the EPD network will showcase the most notable lessons learned from the field, using audio-visual material, presentations and discussions. Their stand will thus contribute to a broader understanding of democracy and electoral processes and will demonstrate how many fields, seemingly diverse from the electoral, are actually interconnected. It will constitute a forum to jointly examine the electoral field and will feature several debates organised by the different EPD members.
On 15th June at 18:00, ECES and EPD will be represented in the high level panel chaired by High Representative and Vice-president of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini, on “Implementing SDG 16 in relation with the opportunities and challenges to the security and development nexus”.
