Elections are a window onto a country's political system. Belarus, Georgia and Ukraine held parliamentary elections in September and October. NDI has worked closely with citizen election monitors in all three countries and has also conducted international observation efforts Ukraine and Georgia. Laura Jewett, Regional Director, Eurasia Programs, National Democratic Institute, will discuss what these concentrated political events tell us about civic and political rights in those countries.
