  Add to Calendar 2020-10-22 9:25 2020-10-23 18:25 Europe/Paris Agents of Change: the Economics and Politics of Reform

This executive training seminar will apply a rigorous, evidence-based approach to economic reform efforts drawn from the hands-on experience of senior policy practitioners. Participants will gain an understanding of the methods and tools required to become Agents of change within both national and international administrations while also gaining invaluable insights through interactive exercises with a network of peers who share the common understanding of the challenges of reform.

  • Areas of focus: Topics will cover an understanding of the constraints posed and opportunities offered by the broader economic and geopolitical environment; the political economy aspects of designing and successfully implementing reform programmes; and the specific foundational issues in structural fiscal reforms (e.g. budget and tax) as well as the reform of social protection systems.
  • What you will learn: The training intends to build and enhance analytical skills and substantive knowledge in key areas of programme design, as well as the capacity to approach the issue of effective implementation of public structural reform policies. This involves a critical understanding of the opportunities and constraints intrinsic to such reform efforts, as well as the needs for administrative and political preparation and prioritization, to include communication of goals and measuring progress and results.
  • How you will learn: Interactive knowledge sharing across core areas of structural reform as well as political and administrative issues involved in designing a comprehensive economic reform programme. Case study presentation and discussion of successful reform efforts presented by experienced policy makers and policy analysts. Simulated negotiations in the preparation of comprehensive reform packages with internal political constituencies and external funding institutions.

Fees: 1300 €
