On 28 May thirty two young professionals and students from 29 OSCE participating States met at the third workshop within the framework of the nine-month “Perspectives 20-30 Online Academy” which started in March 2021. During this workshop participants were trained in policy writing and learned about the decision making process at the OSCE.
Dr. Shairbek Dzhuraev, OSCE Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow, presented what a policy paper is, why it is important and how to write it to maximize impact. Following the theoretical part, Ambassador Igli Hasani, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Albania to the International Organizations in Vienna and Chairperson of the OSCE Permanent Council 2020 discussed with students how the decision making works in practice at the OSCE.
At the end of the workshop, participants presented and discussed their group research projects.
