The first workshop in a series of two trainings on Voter Registration and Electoral Technology was held in Erbil – Iraq from June 14 – 18, 2015. IFES organized the workshop in coordination with IHEQ and was funded by USAID. Twenty-five participants from different IHEC departments participated in the 5-day training course – four of them were women. All of the participants were exposed to BRIDGE for the first time in this workshop.
The facilitation team consisted of Ossama Kamel, Bilal Malik, Orjwan H. Salman, Ali Hassan Badai and Jawad Tweyh Sergel (the last four are IHEC BRIDGE facilitators). Ali Hassan Badai and Jawad Tweyh Sergel obtained their accreditation to become BRIDGE workshop facilitators.
