ENoP online conference: Political parties in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic

23/09/2020

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected not only the socio-economic aspect of people’s lives, but it also had a strong impact on political life around the world. Over the last months we observe negative tendencies of decrease in civil liberties and power concentration in political leaders under the pretext of measures against the propagation of the virus.

The following session explores the implications of the crisis on political parties and the mechanisms they put in place to fight against undemocratic measures, aimed at silencing opposition actors. It also addresses the challenges linked to elections and the impact on internal party democracy processes.
