On 8 and 9 April 2011, an international Expert Meeting took place on the monitoring and assessment of elections. This meeting was unique in its kind: it was the first time election observers from the academic world, politics and international organisations – e.g. the OSCE, Council of Europe, and the EU - met to discuss Election Observation Missions (EOMs). In twenty chapters, this book provides an overview of decision processes, role, and interpretation of findings of the 30 thousand international observers deployed in EOMs since 1995.
The book published jointly by Statistics Netherlands and Maastricht University.
