Bringing young people's perspective from Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria
EU Policy Lab supporting collaborative policy dialogue:
Over the past months, the European Commission Directorate General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR) has developed a methodological policy dialogue workshop on youth education and employment policies, which took place in Rabat on 18th, 19th and 20th September.
DG NEAR Technical Assistance Information Exchange Instrument (TAIEX) regularly organises workshops in which EU Member State experts are invited to present specific areas of EU legislation to a group of neighbourhood countries officials. Inspired by EU Policy Lab Connections event last year, DG NEAR (who had actively contributed by presenting a challenge) had proposed to adopt a different and more engaging approach, asking the EU Policy Lab’s support in the design of a TAIEX workshop. It was suggested to bring in the perspective of the young people from Maghreb and foster an informal conversation between the government and business representative of Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria.
