Management of Democratic Elections in Africa


Alumni refers to the trainees who have benefited and participated in the MDEA programme.

Owing to the success of the MDEA training program, the need to think about shifting from once-off training encounters that lead to improved expertise and roles of individuals in electoral management bodies towards the building of a more spread out capacity to manage democratic elections successfully in Africa has been highlighted.

This entails positioning MDEA alumni to become catalysts for positive influence beyond their specific locales and agencies, and across the regions affected by the training. This is a concept note to form the basis of a proposal to the USAID for a continuous learning programme.
