YAANI fellowship Program: Policy Analysis Training.

Tunisia’s political leadership, under the oversight of the Tunisian Society in general, and the civil society in particular, pledged to dedicate itself to the country’s development and promised to consolidate democracy through a people-driven process for the realization of the  Revolution’s demands.

The implementation of the above vision, requires, inter alia, appropriate strategies, horizontal and vertical policies, along with planning and execution capacities.  Unfortunately, the latter skills and know how, especially those related to industrial policy in general and Technology  development in particular, are very scarce in Tunisia.

Thus, to help alleviate this enduring and serious national handicap, and tackle the societal challenges facing the country and the region, the Tunisian Association for the Advancement of Science, Technology and Innovation (TAASTI) in partnership with the British Council  (BC), and the United Nation (UN) in Tunisia, designed and is offering a policy training program for young Tunisian professionals. The training is called the YAANI Fellowship Program, or YAANI for short.

The YAANI program is designed to help the trainees understand what policy analysis is, what it is needed for and how to design policies with special emphasis on policy briefs writing. Moreover, and due to the structure of the pedagogical content as well as the experiential learning, the trainees are implicitly exposed to participative democracy as well as political concepts.

The training is composed of three phases, and each phase corresponds to a competency level. The trainees, after being selected through a national competitive process, go through the first introductory level. Similarly to the the first phase, the second level introduces the graduates of  the first level to more advanced theoretical and applied concepts and tools. Finally, the best trainees are retained for level three in order to undergo a training in renowned institutions  involved in policy analysis. The laureates of YAANI have to successfully complete their training by submitting a short internship report, and finalizing their policy brief project in light of their overall fellowship program.
