GPECS II - Asia and the Pacific
In the Asia-Pacific region, significant progress on democratic development has been achieved. Electoral Management Bodies (EMBs) are more technically competent and skilled than ever before. They are having greater access to technical information, expertise, capacity building initiatives and professional relationships with other EMBs. Yet, at the same time, elections are becoming more complex and thus the management of this processes is also becoming more challenging. The GPECS II Regional Component Asia and Pacific aims at connecting EMBs from the region and strengthen their capacities through stronger networks, exchanges and regional capacity developing measures. Regional focus topics include the prevention of electoral violence and the political empowerment of women.
