Campaign Study Trips


Campaign strategies and tactics in the United States are the most advanced in the world. There’s plenty to dislike about American politics—the massive amounts of money, the never-ending campaign—yet there is a sophistication of American political advertising, campaign organization, voter motivation, and data management that can apply in other contexts.

Arkedis Strategies and Karakoyun Strategies partner to create high-quality election delegation study trips to the United States during elections. We plan the itinerary and accompany your group to two days of meetings in Washington, DC, followed by three full days in a key battleground states to see canvasing and campaign operations up close.

EAPC 2017 Conference:
Theme: Rising Populism & the Role of Political Consultants

From the growth of populist movements across Europe to Britain’s vote for Brexit, and the election of Donald Trump, voters are expressing their dissatisfaction with t
he status quo. Right – populist parties have made inroads in recent elections by joining xenophobic, anti-immigrant sentiment with calls to refocus government on the needs and struggles of the native-born. At EAPC’s annual conference we will examine the complex web of social, moral and political concerns that are driving this unrest, with an upclose look at how politics can address the concern of voters driving this populist wave. We will explore how political leaders and strategies, using modern campaign tools, can be more effective in responding to the anxiety that is producing the support for populist movements. Register now.
