IDEA and HDS Book Sprint on dialogue for peaceful elections

Today it’s our second day of a new Book Sprint in the charming city of Bern, the capital of Switzerland.

The book is an initiative led by the Human Security Department of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (HDS) and International IDEA.

Taking as a starting point that political dialogue is a major conflict-prevention mechanism, the group is writing a practical guide on how to facilitate dialogue initiatives in the context of electoral processes in transition or conflict countries (codes of conduct).

Participants will bring their hands-on facilitation experiences to illustrate with practical examples the different steps and essential considerations.
