The objective of IDEA’s training on dialogue skills is to improve the politicians’ knowledge and skills for designing, participating into, and facilitating interparty dialogues at the local level. The training also comes at a time when some of the countries are preparing for elections in 2018 (like Bosnia Herzegovina) while the other countries have their elections in 2019 and 2020. Effective dialogue skills can prevent possible electoral violence and improve delivery of services by local governments.
