Bucharest - The Permanent Electoral Authority of Romania, in cooperation with the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe, organised the 3rd Scientific Electoral Experts Debates on “Accessibility of the electoral process”. The event took place on 16 February 2021, via Microsoft Teams, 14:00 -18:00 (Bucharest time – UTC+2).
The 3rd Scientific Electoral Experts Debates addressed accessibility of the electoral process, which is essential for the implementation of the universal suffrage - one of the main principles of electoral law. The online event approached accessibility from a conceptual point of view and not only as a practical issue, and therefore goes beyond physical accessibility.
The working language was English. The event was open to the press and was available live on YouTube.
The reports submitted to the conference will be published in the Romanian Journal of Electoral Studies.
