Italian, Spanish and Czech MFAs grant patronage to EIUC Training Seminars for International Electoral Observers
Launched in November 2012, the EIUC Training Seminars for International Electoral Observers (IEO) aims at introducing civilian staff to the profession of election observers and at delivering a complete theoretical and practical basic course to those willing to consider election observation as a possible professional step in their career.
The Italian, Spanish and Czech Ministries of Foreign Affairs welcomed this EIUC initiative and granted their patronage for the seminars for International Electoral Observers. (see programme here)
EIUC is constantly working in trying to involve as many EU focal points in its courses on election observation in order to create synergies with its participants and visibility within the different ministries of foreign affairs who are the ones responsible for the recruitment and proposal of their own country’s candidates for selection as Short-Term and Long-Term Observers to EU and ODIHR Election Observation Missions.
It is therefore with great pleasure that we welcome for the March edition of this training seminar Mr. Jan Kaminek, Focal Point for election observation at the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Ms Isabel Menchón López, focal point for the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
