About this Episode

Increasingly, elections that are fair, just and accessible to all cannot be taken for granted anymore. Hence, the role of election observers is becoming more and more important: Whenever an election is held, they are on site to report any irregularities or even fraud. In our podcast, we talk with Therese Pearce Laanela from International IDEA, an intergovernmental organisation supporting and promoting democratic processes worldwide, about how their mission has changed in recent years due to digitalisation and the pandemic, and what democratisation aid means in foreign policy.
