Election observation missions (EUEOMs)
Election observation is a vital EU activity aiming to promote democracy, human rights and the rule of law worldwide. It contributes to strengthening democratic institutions, building public confidence in electoral processes, helping to deter fraud, intimidation and violence. It also reinforces other key EU foreign policy objectives, in particular peace-building.
Election Observation is a highly visible demonstration of international commitment to supporting democracy and promoting respect for human rights around the world. The EU and other international and regional organisations deploy Election Observation Missions globally but these missions are also increasingly exposed to public scrutiny and new challenges. High Level Conference co-hosted by the European External Action Service and the European Parliament brings together partners from around the world to discuss the Future of International Election Observation, key challenges and opportunities.
