GPECS II - Arab States
The Arab States continue to witness new debates on democratic reforms and institutions. The recent political transitions demonstrate the need for mutual understanding and discourse on democratic norms and principles, including electoral processes and institutions. The GPECS Regional Component for Arab States works to address this need by strengthening regional cooperation, enhancing regional electoral knowledge, and promoting a greater and more effective role of women and youth in the electoral process. This 2-pager outlines the foreseen activities and outcomes GPECS II is envisaging in the Arab States between 2015 and 2017.
