Making policies work

Young international professionals programme

ECDPM’s young international professionals programme offers young researchers from Africa an opportunity to join one of our policy teams for a period of six months to a year. The programme aims to inspire dynamic exchanges of knowledge, views and networks.

Since the programme was created in 2013, eleven young professionals from Algeria, Benin, Botswana, Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia and Uganda have joined our policy teams. A number of these researchers were recruited in cooperation with African organisations and divided their time between ECDPM and the partner institute.
