13:40 - 15:00
Room 206, Shaw Centre

The aim of the session is to feature the innovation of civil society, election management body (EMB) and political parties making politics more open and accessible, engaging citizens to make more informed choices well-beyond the electoral period. The outcome of the session is to create a cross-region country exchange between different political actors to foster political engagement and transparency. This can be succeeded by discussing and developing map of open election initiatives, groups, and events in across the world where innovations, techniques, and collaboration presented on the session could be applied. By the end of the session, we hope to engage participants in thinking of ways in which we can improve cooperation between different political actors to foster political transparency, innovation, and civic participation.
