Voting during pandemics: making democracy resilient in turbulent time – Experiences from central & south eastern Europe Online Launch

Saying that COVID has changed everything or that it has magnified existing challenges is a little bit like stating the obvious by now. Although the pandemic isn’t yet over, already many volumes have been devoted to diagnosis and predictions about the respective trajectories of socio-economic phenomena that it induced. At the same time, there seems to have been relatively less attention paid to what COVID meant when it comes to political processes. This is precisely the niche that this publication intends to address.

This event took the opportunity to present the paper series that is resulting from a year-long project that took place in 2021 called “Voting during pandemics – making democracy resilient in turbulent times – experiences from Central, Eastern, and South-Eastern Europe” brought by FEPS, together with the Institute for Social Integration (ISI) ; with the generous support of Centrum Im. Ignacego DaszyDskiego, Masarykova demokratická akademie, Foundation for a Democratic Left and Drustvo Progresiva.
