Beyond Election Day: Best practices for follow-up to EU Election Observation MissionsBeyond Election Day: Best practices for follow-up to EU Election Observation Missions
Election Observation Missions (EOMs) are a highly visible demonstration of the European Union (EU)’s commitment to supporting democratisation and promoting respect for human rights across the world. EU EOMs’ immediate goals are to strengthen confidence in elections, deter fraud, and provide an informed and factual assessment of an election process. Their longer-term objectives aim at improving the overall election framework and the context in which elections are held, strengthening the independence and accountability of state institutions and enhancing the resilience of partner countries through supporting good governance. The recommendations issued by EOMs can be instrumental in improving future elections and, more broadly, can be a crucial element in the deepening of democracy.
The brochure "Beyond Election Day: Best practices for follow-up to EU Election Observation Missions" was launched at the European Development Days on 8 June 2017 in Brussels.
