The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) and the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) are hosting the 2021-2022 Policy Communication Fellows Programme. The annual programme seeks to bridge the gap that often exists between the research and policy environments. This year’s fellowship brings together early-career researchers from Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Ethiopia and Tanzania inspiring greater south-south collaboration and knowledge exchange.
In the virtual workshops, fellows will connect with research and advocacy experts and learn, firsthand, relevant advocacy priorities and policy landscapes. The Policy Fellows Program is committed to providing an enriching, cutting-edge experience for participants that reflects the diverse and constantly evolving landscape of policy and communications.
The goals of the Policy Communication Fellows program are:
- To understand the process by which research informs the policy environment.
- To learn how to communicate research to policy audiences in a way that encourages action.
- To improve participants’ communication skills using a variety of formats and platforms.
The fellowship programme will run from 7 February 2021 to 22 February 2021.
