Youth Legal Community and the Role It Plays in Development of Russia’s Electoral Infrastructure
28 June 2022
Russia today is a democratic state governed by the rule of law with an intrinsic process of civil society development. One of the important areas of civil society development and electoral infrastructure improvement in the country is public observation. Unrestricted by the interests of a candidate or party, public observation is now called to assist in the fulfilment of citizens’ electoral rights. The activity of public observers contributes to the adherence to provide equal rights to all participants in the electoral process. Today, the involvement of young people in the observation process is an effective tool for the formation of their civic position. Public observation allows the participants to plunge directly into the electoral processes. As a consequence, it leads to implementation of constitutional rights, stimulates the prevention of unconventional forms of youth participation in political life, and at the same time develops legal awareness and legal literacy among young people. Experts participating in the session will focus on the topical issues of socio-political development of the country, such as public observation at the elections, as well as the instruments to involve youth legal community in the electoral infrastructure of Russia. Questions for discussion:
• Vectors of electoral system development in the Russian Federation;
• Forms and ways of involving young people in the country's electoral infrastructure;
• The role of public observation in elections in Russia;
• Latest innovations in the electoral legislation;
• Prevention of unconventional forms of political participation of young people.
