Using Public International Law to Assess Elections: The Experience in Africa, 2010

3-4 May 2010, Nairobi, Kenya

In partnership with The Carter Center, EISA co-hosted a two-day workshop on assessment criteria for democratic elections. The workshop's aim was to introduce participating organisations to tools for election observation based on public international law. These tools, which are the output of TCC's multi-year, collaborative Democratic Election Standards project, were presented for review and discussion amongst participants to determine their effectiveness and relevance in the African region.

The gathering was attended by representatives drawn from organisations working in the area of election observation, human rights, democracy and governance across the African continent.
