2. Seminar: an arranged series of talks delivered by our keynote speakers who are the distinguished scholars in the field of election, political party, and democracy.

3. Dr. Patrick Ziegenhain

This conference is aimed at convening the academics, researchers and policymakers to discuss their studies and experiences in order to better understand the dynamics so far in the realm of election and democracy.
Apart from that, this conference is expected to be a forum for academics to learn from the peers, formulate the best practices in the electoral system, exchange election-related knowledge and democracy, gather numerous insights generated from the research, and advance the narrative of how the electoral system shapes democratic practices.
