Developing public servants’ skills: policy design and evaluation


The team of Strategic Analysis supports the Centre of Policy Studies in implementing the project “Developing public servants’ Skills: Policy Design and Evaluation”, supported by the International Visegrad Fund.

The project will deepen already established cooperation with policy experts in both Armenia and V4 states, let to develop the policy dialogue with Armenian state agencies, educational institutions and civil society organisations, and to collect information for adjusting future courses’ curricula to different state agencies’ specific needs.

It is planned to organize a policy design and evaluation course, specially tailored for the Armenian context, for a group of Armenian public servants and junior university lecturers, using experience and know-how provided by Armenian experts and V4 partners (Budapest Institute, Institute for Politics and Society, Res Publica Foundation, and Strategic Analysis Think Tank). Case studies and practical examples taken from different countries’ experience will help the participants to relate to the approaches presented, and to compare policy approaches in Armenia, V4 states and beyond. The course will help the participants to place public policy in a wider web of endeavours and disciplines.
