Human rights and the precarious condition of electoral democracy – Right On Web Chat

28 Oct 2020


It is widely assumed that human rights and electoral democracy are mutually supportive and inextricably connected. There can be little doubt that the regular holding of free and fair democratic elections is essential for citizens’ enjoyment of human rights. However, we are presently confronted by a range of different challenges to the democratic process within both long-established and transitional electorally democratic countries. With less than a week remaining to what is likely to be the most contested and fraught US presidential election in decades, this webinar assembles a panel of globally renowned experts to consider the precarious condition of electoral democracies in these challenging times.

We therefore invite you to join us for the third web chat of Right On 2.0 on Wednesday, 28 October at 2pm UTC (3 pm CET).
