ANFREL senior program officer selected for Asia Young Leaders for Democracy program

ANFREL senior program officer for outreach and communication John Reiner Antiquerra has been selected as one of the participants for the 8th Asia Young Leaders for Democracy (AYLD) program.

Organized by the Taiwan Foundation for Democracy, AYLD gathers young leading democracy advocates and NGO activists across Asia to attend lectures, engage in discussions and visit sites significant to the development of democracy and human rights in Taiwan. The 8th annual AYLD program will be from 18-25 August 2024.

Antiquerra leads ANFREL's media program, particularly its pioneering Asian Media Fellowship on Election Reporting which equips journalists with the necessary knowledge and skills to amplify underrepresented voices and shed light on under-reported issues and challenges during elections through a series of training workshops, mentoring, and editorial support.

He has been part of ANFREL's international election observation missions to Indonesia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, and Thailand as election observer and electoral analyst. He has written and edited reports and toolkits on the media's coverage of elections and coordinated research initiatives on elections in Asia.

Antiquerra is honored and pleased to be joining fellow leading democracy advocates across Asia and is looking forward to share his experiences and learn from the experience of his esteemed colleagues.
