Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic –The Venice Commission was invited to participate in the XIIIth Inter-American Meeting of Electoral Authorities, organised by the Department of Electoral Cooperation and Observation (DECO) of the Organization of American States (OAS).
The Inter-American Meetings of Electoral Management Bodies (RAE as per its Spanish acronym) promote the exchange of knowledge, experiences and successful practices in electoral administration within the region. The RAE, the only forum that brings together all the authorities of the hemisphere, seeks to provide an established space in which those authorities can identify and discuss the challenges they face. These meetings facilitate horizontal cooperation in order to continuously strengthen the institutional capacities of electoral bodies and further improve the way elections are conducted in the Americas.
