Voting during pandemics: making democracy resilient in turbulent times

May 24, 2022

Experiences from Central - South - Eastern Europe

Although many volumes have already discussed several COVID-related socio-economic phenomena, relatively less attention has been paid to a substantive research question: what has COVID meant for political processes?

The research project is a 100 page-long collection of policy briefs analysing COVID’s impact on electoral laws and pre-campaign strategies; electoral campaigns in the pandemic, as well as post-electoral processes and governments’ formations experiences.

“Voting during pandemics – making democracy resilient in turbulent times” is a project by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) in partnership with the Institute for Social Integration (ISI). It benefited from the generous support of Centrum Im. Ignacego Daszyńskiego, the Masarykova demokratická akademie, the Foundation for a Democratic Left and Drustvo Progresiva.
