Initiative and financing
The project OiA is based on three elements:
- Providing the full training for future observers and observation of local government elections in Poland with them (October 2018),
- Providing the full training on video observation as well as conducting the video observation of the Russian election itself
- creating standards and methodology for video election observation as a new form of evaluation of the electoral process.
The initiator of the OiA and its main contributor is the Political Accountability Foundation, which carried out activities related to the observation of local government election in Poland on October 21, 2018 in cooperation with Code4Romania and the e-State Foundation.
The project «Observers in Action» is financed by the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum. The funds are allocated by the European Commission. OiA is a direct continuation of the "Young Election Observers" project supported by EU-Russia Civil Society Forum and organized by the Forum of Young Diplomats.
