This online course offers a dynamic and interactive approach to the question of youth participation in electoral processes and constitutes an important knowledge tool for electoral management bodies (EMBs). It aims to provide key understanding of the
barriers youth are facing to participate and engage actively in political life of their countries. The course discusses strategies and provides entry points for EMBs to overcome these obstacles and to make sure that all segments of the society are empowered
to participate to electoral processes.
The course will also explore innovative solutions to protect youth from being exploited by unscrupulous politicians and potentially involved in electoral violence. Finally, the eLearning sheds light on how
these objectives can be linked to the indicators of SDGs, in particular Goal 16.
