San José, Costa Rica. The first of three virtual meetings on ‘Electoral Training in View of the New Challenge” of the Network of Schools and Institutes for Training of the Inter-American Union of Electoral Bodies (UNIORE) was held on June 8, 2020. The Center for Electoral Promotion and Assistance (CAPEL) coordinated the activity.
At this meeting, thirty-four members of these institutions were able to exchange experiences on the measures that they have taken to adapt to the new reality brought about by the pandemic.
They offered a general view of the functions, competences and activities of their institutions and how they have had to modify them due to the pandemic. The members also emphasized the importance of the Network as a tool that facilitates exchanges during the new reality. The next meeting, to be held June 15, will take up the topic “The New Juncture for the Schools and Institutes: the Exercise of their Functions (Training and Research) and the Implementation of their Projects.”
