TIJ Workshop for Emerging Leaders on the Rule of Law & Policy

Required Documents for Application Submission 

The TIJ-IGLP Academic Committee will utilize uploaded documents to evaluate the candidate’s “fit” along with areas of expertise and policy interests. These documents will help us determine the most suitable Policy Skills Team for each candidate.

Policy Skills Teams are peer-to-peer sessions, which form the core of the Workshop experience. Each participant will be assigned to a group and paired with a partner. They will be mentored by selected faculty members from the IGLP network on how to effectively frame policy questions and “pitch” policy initiatives.

In order to complete your application, please upload the following documents:

1. Resume/CV

Please upload a short personal statement (in PDF format) of at least 100 words but not exceeding 250 words describing yourself and why you are interested in attending the TIJ Workshop for Emerging Leaders on the Rule of Law & Policy

3. Policy Experience/ Initiative  

Each Workshop participant will bring a policy experience or idea/initiative to share with colleagues. Working in teams, you will brainstorm alternative approaches to the issue. To help prepare for the discussions, please answer the following questions.

  1. Problem Identification (500 words)
    • What policy initiative would you like to brainstorm with your colleagues? How were you—or might you be—involved in this issue?
    • What problem or difficulty prompts or prompted this policy initiative? What was the “diagnosis” or process which led to the initiative? Who are the actors in your policy initiative?
  2. Solution and Alternatives (500 words)
    • What was or is the solution to be proposed?
    • What alternative solutions were discussed? What strategy led to the initiative rather than these alternatives?

    • What questions are you left with? How might the group be helpful to your thinking?
