How to apply

Applications to attend the International Summer School on Public Policy - Yaoundé edition are open until March, 17. We invite you to consult the course proposals separately to identify your favorite ones. 

For the mornings, you can choose between four courses which represent 10 hours (2 hours each day):

      • Macro and Micro Perspectives on Policymaking by Kent Weaver [English-speaking course]
      • Studying Public Policies through their Instruments: Public Policy Instruments in African Contexts by Mireille Manga Edimo and Abdoul Karim Saidou [English-speaking course]
      • The Transnational Policy Process and Development Cooperation by Michelle Morais de Sa e Silva [English-speaking course]
      • Etudier la fabrique politique des politiques publiques: approches constructivistes, pragmatiques et qualitatives by Philippe Zittoun [French-speaking course]

The afternoon workshops on Research Design represent 12 hours (3 hours by 4 days).

The selection of the participants will be based on their CVs and their research paper abstracts (to be presented during the afternoon Workshop).

The results will be announced progressively. The registration will open in parallel to allow accepted candidates to register as soon as they receive their results. Attendance to the Summer School will be confirmed upon registration. The number of places in each course is limited and registration is open within the limit of available places (around 10 participants per course). To ensure your participation, we strongly advise you to submit your application and register as early as possible.
