Research presentation: “Voting during pandemics: making democracy resilient in turbulent times”

24 May 2022, 14:00 - 15:30 CET

Voting during pandemics: making democracy resilient in turbulent times – experiences from Central - South - Eastern Europe | Online Launch

Although many volumes have already discussed several COVID-related socio-economic phenomena, relatively less attention has been paid to a substantive research question: what has COVID meant for political processes?

On 24 May, the results of a year-long project on the matter that took place in 2021 under the title “Voting during pandemics: making democracy resilient in turbulent times – experiences from Central - South - Eastern Europe” will be presented to the public.

The research project is a 100 page-long collection of policy briefs analysing COVID’s impact on electoral laws and pre-campaign strategies; electoral campaigns in the pandemic, as well as post-electoral processes and governments’ formations experiences.

“Voting during pandemics – making democracy resilient in turbulent times” is a project by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) in partnership with the Institute for Social Integration (ISI). It benefited from the generous support of Centrum Im. Ignacego Daszyńskiego, Masarykova demokratická akademie, the Foundation for a Democratic Left and Drustvo Progresiva.
