Global workshop to draft and advance Model Election Law Provisions to ensure electoral participation of people with disabilities
21/09/2003 - 23/09/2003
This international workshop aims to facilitate the participation of citizens with disabilities in elections. It is co-organised by the International Foundation for Election Systems (IFES), the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), and Inclusion International. The Venice Commission is invited to share its expertise on electoral issues.
After a first step in Sigtuna, Sweden (14 – 17 September 2002), where participants endorsed the Bill of Electoral Rights for Citizens with Disabilities, this 2nd workshop will aim at translating these principles into a Model Election Law Provisions.
