Training course "HOW TO BE A BETTER POLICY ADVISOR"

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, September 11-14, 2007


ReSPA (The Regional School of Public Administration) organized, in September 2007 in Sarajevo, a NISPAcee training course “How to be a Better Policy Advisor” for participants from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, FYROM, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia.


ReSPA is a joint initiative of the European Union and the OECD, principally financed by the EU. The initial concept of ReSPA was developed with the objective of boosting regional co-operation in the field of public administration, strengthening administrative capacity and developing human resources in line with the principles of the European Administrative Space (Sigma Paper No. 23).


The introduction was made by Mr. Niko Grubesic, Assistant Minister in B&H’s Ministry of Justice, member of the ReSPA Steering Committee, Ms. Inga Stefanowicz, ReSPA representative and Ms. Elena Zakova, NISPAcee representative. The training course was successfully led by a team of NISPAcee international trainers – Mr. Alfredas Chmieliauskas (Lithuania), Mr. Gyorgy Gajdushek (Hungary) and Ms. Lesya Il'chenko-Syuyva (Ukraine).


The objective of the training course was to provide participating public officials from the Western Balkan region with an opportunity to increase their knowledge and develop their skills in the design of public policy advice and the establishment of channels for its delivery to their respective governments.


At the request of the ReSPA team at the OECD, the initial training module “How to be a Better Policy Advisor” had to be tailored by NISPAcee trainers for the participants. For a target audience of public officials, certain academic parts of the original module were substituted with key elements of change management, project management, team building and policy paper writing skills (alternatives, formulation and evaluation).


The positive feedback from participants and their evaluation of the course indicates that this kind of training is very much needed and appreciated in the NISPAcee region. The participants confirmed in their evaluations that the training course brought them new information and a better understanding of issues in the area of policy making and advice and also opportunities for further personal development. The course also served as an excellent forum for participating officials from the respective countries to share experiences, learn more about each other’s countries and institutions and establish new ways of co-operation.
