The Center for Applied Policy Research (C·A·P) at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich/Germany, the Arab Institute for Human Rights (AIHR) in Tunis, the Laboratoire de Recherches sur la Transition Démocratique Comparée at University Hassan I in Settat, Morocco, and the Union des Tunisiens Indépendants pour la Liberté (UTIL) are welcoming applications for the Young Leaders Forum 2015.
The Young Leaders Forum (YLF) is a dialogue and workshop program that brings together emerging leaders from Morocco, Tunisia, and Germany and offers them a platform to exchange about their experiences with national political, economic, and social reform efforts and jointly reflect on strategies on how to strengthen Euro-Mediterranean and regional cooperation. In addition to that, the development and strengthening of the participants’ interpersonal and organizational skills, peer-to-peer learning, and the establishment of vibrant and dynamic networks are major objectives of the program.
During the program, the participants form international teams that focus on specific questions and cooperate throughout the whole project period. Key topics of the previous programs included energy and resource management, community leadership, political consulting, policy evaluation, and social media campaigning. Cooperation in-between the meetings will be facilitated through online working tools and accompanied by the tri-national project team.
The first YLF 2015 will take place in Berlin from 28 July - 2 August 2015.
The second YLF 2015 will take place in Tunis from 18 - 22 November 2015.
In-between the two forums, all participants are going to participate in a two-day national network meeting in their respective home-countries.
In particular we invite applicants that have a background in the following topics:
- Citizen Participation: Governance on Local Level
- Refugees - A Common Challenge for North Africa and Europe
- The Future of Energy and Energy Security
- Fighting Extremism
Application documents should include an English CV as well as a motivation letter of up to 500 words and must be sent to YLF2015@lrz.uni-muenchen.de
Every participant must confirm that he/she will attend the events described above.
The deadline for applications is 7 June 2015.
