Covid-19 and Democracy in East Africa: Online Conference, 19-20 November

What are the prospects for democracy in East Africa? Will the ongoing coronavirus pandemic accelerate or hinder its acceptance by leaders and citizens alike? What should we expect as we look to the future?

SID, in collaboration with the The Kofi Annan Foundation and with the support of the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF), are hosting an online conference on 19-20 November exploring the state of democracy in East Africa in the context of the coronavirus pandemic – what challenges is the region facing and what opportunities could be identified particularly when it comes to protecting voters and protecting the vote?
