Election Dispute Resolution In Europe: An Analysis of The Standards By The Venice Commission, Odihr and The Ecthr
This presentation looks into the existence and formation of European-wide standards of election dispute resolution in Europe, due to the work of the Venice Commission, the ODIHR and the ECtHR. It examines the standards that those three bodies set on several issues of election dispute resolution and indicates that these standards are geared towards the protection of non-state actors in the election process. Furthermore, it shows that these standards, taken together, are a driving force of convergence between the European states and lead to a certain Europeanization of the domestic system of election dispute resolution.
