Young policymakers, public servants and civil society actors from nine countries are welcome to join the Swedish Institute Academy for Young Professionals (SAYP) “Perspectives on Multi-level Governance, Decentralisation & Human Rights”.
Organised in a collaboration between the Lund University Commissioned Education (LUCE), Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM) and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law (RWI), the SAYP provides the participants with knowledge of the role of public administration in the protection of human rights, rule of law and democracy.
The Academy helped me understand how a human rights-based approach might make our projects more beneficial to the people we try to help. This is where the programme filled my knowledge gaps the most. It’s a new perspective for public health workers in Armenia.’ Samvel, 2020 participant from Armenia.
