Collaborating to train Tunisian civil service
The Institute of Public Administration and Management (IPAM) in Malta and the International Policy Leadership Institute (IPLI) in Paris, France, are currently collaborating on a research project to identify training needs of the Tunisian civil service.
A team of graduate researchers from the Master of Public Affairs programme at the Institut d’études politiques in Paris are currently engaged in the project and are expected to present their research to the IPAM and IPLI in mid-2013.
This research will help IPAM offer support for training programmes in the Tunisian civil service. It is also hoped the experience of this collaboration will open new opportunities for IPAM and the University’s Department of Public Policy to work with other academic institutions in Europe, and possibly North Africa, to run a joint Master’s programme in public policy or public affairs.
There is also the prospect of holding an annual event in Malta known as the IPLI-IPAM Malta Mediterranean Forum on Governance.
