Policy Roundtables

Monthly round tables on policy issues are aimed at narrowing the gap between the youth of the country, more specifically alumni community and the governmental representative in decision-making process. The policy round tables take place in Baku. The representatives of NGOs, public and the media are also invited to participate in the round table and have a direct access to these policy makers.

Through the venue, provided by the policy roundtables, the alumni get an excellent opportunity to talk to the policy-makers (deputies, members of the Ministries, Committees, etc), bring their concerns and ideas to their attention, offer policy recommendation and suggestions on problem solving. Each round table is organized on a specific topic, such as economics, social problems, foreign policy, etc. In general, this is alumni's chance to participate in Azerbaijan's governance and development.
