didactic form diverse
practical aspects of the
organization of an electoral
campaign.  Lecturers who,
like her, have the virtue of
presenting their knowledge
accurately and with grace,
ensure the success of any
event of this nature.  
Participants evaluated her
performance very positively,

professional and a good

complex exit poll
assignment in the former
Soviet Union".
