Students Learn How to Succeed in Policy Applied Research Writing


On 13 March students of the OSCE Academy had a chance to meet Dr. Marcin Walecki, Head of the Democratization Department, OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and Prof. Ghia Nodia, Chairman of the Caucasus Institute for Peace, Democracy and Development (CIPDD), and to discuss 'Policy-applied research on human rights and democracy from an IGO perspective.' Dr. Walecki shared his personal and the differing experiences of working as a researcher in the academic and in a policy-applied environment  and the difference between policy relevant reports and academic papers, while being employed by the Intergovernmental Organization.  Prof. Nodia gave a talk about his experience in promoting his research works in Georgia. Dr. Walecki further provided with suggestions for junior researchers  on how to  succeed in policy paper writing and in making research get to the target audience and become applied. The presentation was followed by Q&A session, where students used the opportunity to engage the speakers in more detailed discussions of selected issues.
