Kosovo Young Faces Network – Event Cycle 2011:

Security Sector Governance and Oversight in Kosovo

The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), jointly with the Kosovar Center for Security Studies (KCSS), would like to invite you to compete for a place in our 2011 series of capacity-building events in the framework of the Kosovo Young Faces Network (KYFN).

These events, to take place in Kosovo and abroad in the course of 2011, will focus on Security Sector Governance and Oversight, and in particular the role of the Parliament in overseeing developments related to security policy in Kosovo. Participants will be selected from among young scholars, junior government officials, junior security sector personnel, junior parliamentary staff, members of NGOs and journalists in Kosovo. A key feature of the programme is to provide networking opportunities for young and upcoming opinion leaders in Kosovo and to strengthen relevant technical skills, including policy paper drafting.

Active participation in the events will be awarded with a certificate. Participants who successfully participate in the policy paper drafting process will be invited to take part in a study visit to Geneva, Switzerland to be held in early summer 2011. The three best policy papers will be considered for publication.

Participants will be selected on the basis of short essays they will prepare as part of the selection process. For detailed information on requirements for participation, essay topics and logistics, see below. Interested candidates are invited to contact the organisers m.defreese@dcaf.ch and sofije.kryeziu@qkss.org for further details.
