Political Adviser Course for Eastern partners

The FBA, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and the School of Public Policy (SPP) at Central European University recently co-organized a three-day intensive training course.

20 young policy professionals under the age of 30 from ministries and presidential administrations as well as parliaments in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine participated. This course was being held at the Council of Europe’s (CoE) Youth Center in Budapest.
 
The course aims to contribute to a better understanding of the role of political advisers and tasks that are at the heart of deliberating, shaping, and implementing policy such as providing advice and influencing, making analysis, writing briefings and speeches and mastering communication and advocacy.

The course is built on the training methodology tested in the successful pilot course hosted by the FBA at Sandö in Sweden in 2014. 


In the video Eteri Buziashvili from Georgia, Oleg Naumenko from Ukraine and Oxana Paierele from Moldova tell FBA mentor Karin Limdal about their reasons for applying, their expectations and their reflections from the first day of the course in Budapest.
