FBA Research Workshop and Research - Policy Dialogue: Elections in Emerging Democracies

The Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) will host a research workshop that brings together scholars of diverse disciplinary backgrounds, such as for example political scientists, peace and conflict researchers, cultural anthropologists, and political sociologists.

Presentations will look at the causes, dynamics and consequences of electoral violence and contributions that empirically examine the wide range of measures usually suggested to prevent and reduce electoral violence, such as electoral security arrangements, institutional frameworks and electoral systems, or civil society initiatives and public awareness campaigns, and papers that more directly address the role and effectiveness of election observations missions.

Dr Thomas Wynter, the Electoral Integrity Project's Postdoctoral Research Associate and PEI Program Manager, will present on the Clientelism and Coercion in Emerging Democracies by drawing upon the Perception of Electoral Integrity dataset.
