About Election Monitoring with BEWC

BEWC regularly recruits UK observers forOSCE/ODIHR election monitoring missions on behalf of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office.


We recruit both short-term and long-term observers (STOs and LTOs) for missions across Eastern Europe and the CIS.

A list of all future missions can be found on the OSCE/ODIHR and FCO websites.

We begin recruitment approximately three months in advance of election day for both STOs and LTOs.

Please see our sections on requirements, how to apply and current missions.
