By EU-CoE youth partnership

Teaser :
The Open Society Youth Initiative (OSYI) started a pilot program to research and analyze public policies affecting youth in 2010. The first round of policy reviews has come to a close. The second round of reviews will kick off in June 2012 with the recruitment of the international advisors, lead researchers and country research teams. It is for this second round that we seek consultants to support the policy reviews as international avisors and youth researchers to support the policy reviews as lead researchers of national research teams. The deadline for applications is July 31, 2012.

News :

Many countries have stated their youth policies, but are they executing them? Do these policies allow young people to achieve their rights? How do specific youth policies interact with broader policies that pertain to young people, and what are the results? How can young people get their fair share of policy attention and resources?
In light of these questions, the Open Society Youth Initiative (OSYI), which promotes youth advocacy and participation in all aspects of their communities, started a pilot program to research and analyze public policies affecting youth in 2010. The project’s main aim was to contribute to the elaboration of evidence on which young people and supporting institutions, such as the Open Society Foundations (OSF), can advocate not only for the adoption of sound national and international youth policies, but for their implementation. It further aimed at providing youth civil society and supporting organizations with what they need for holding governments and international institutions accountable to the promises they make to young people.

The first round of policy reviews—conducted in six countries across the globe: Estonia, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Nepal, Serbia and Uganda—has come to a close, and the final reports will be published as a series here on www.youthpolicy.org starting in summer 2012.
The second round of policy reviews, with the continued support from the Open Society Foundations, will begin in September 2012 with reviews in Colombia, the Czech Republic, Guinea, Hungary, Mongolia, Swaziland and Tunisia.
It is for this second round that we seek consultants to support the policy reviews as international avisors and youth researchers to support the policy reviews as lead researchers of national research teams.

If you consider applying, please make sure that you send your expression of interest by email to our team at workforus@youthpolicy.org by midnight Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) on July 31, 2012, in full accordance with all the instructions mentioned in the two documents published on the website and attached to this news.
