Media Practitioners, Electoral Representatives and Election Experts Converge in Kenya to Discuss Elections

Since the 1990s, Africa has undergone an important wave of democratisation which has in the process ushered a culture of holding elections. However, this process was not always a homogenous process as evidenced by specific regions or countries. This workshop offers the opportunity not only to reflect on some of the key challenges and opportunities of holding elections in a vast continent like Africa, but also to explore ways of fostering the relationship between the election bodies and the media.
