Representatives of the institutions, civil society, experts, the media and the international community have been invited, many of them having already announced their presence.
In this past period, CIVIL published a series of interviews with the highest representatives of several relevant institutions and government representatives, as well as with representatives of the expert community and the media. At the same time, CIVIL also published a series of educational texts on the election process, which will be published in an online publication titled “Everything you want to know about the elections” that will be published on CIVIL’s media platform during the conference.
For years, ahead of the elections, CIVIL has been organizing such conferences, with the intention to strengthen public awareness and deliver recommendations for holding free, fair and democratic elections. This year, the conference is held as part of the project “Citizens for a free society”, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany.
