Missions for Democracy: An Evening with Dr. Martin Nekola


What does democracy truly mean? And with such volatile political experiences going on all over the world, who — or what — provides oversight or transparency on election processes globally? Join us for an insightful and engaging presentation of observation missions organized by the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe), their importance in the modern world, and the various challenges the observers generally face.

Dr. Martin Nekola, Ph.D., received his doctorate in political science at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. His research is focused on non-democratic regimes, the era of Communism, Czech communities abroad, and the East-European anti-communist exiles in the USA during the Cold War. From time to time he participates in the election observation missions organized by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). He is a member of the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES), he is the author of more than three hundred articles and has published twenty books. He is also the Czechoslovak Talks Project (www.czechoslovaktalks.com/en) coordinator.
