Policy Lab


Policy Lab—An Open Call for Young Analysts interested in Public Policy Research, Phnom Penh

You love to contribute to social change but are intimidated by policy research skills. We don’t blame you!

Policy research skills could be the hardest subject to teach yourself. It’s not hard (we promise), you just need to know a few fundamentals and you’ll be flying. Join us in our policy lab program to be inspired by and connect with open-minded and experienced policy researchers, while at the same time, absorbing some in-depth knowledge on the policy research issues.


What is Policy Lab?


It is a platform dedicated to young people. The lab is organized to inspire and train interested and committed youth to critically, systematically, and creatively read, think, discuss, and write about public policies and policy solutions. The program is designed in such a way to expose the selected young analysts to public policy debates and expand their horizon in how they could contribute to policies affecting the nation’s development.


If you are selected, you will:

1, Join a five-day policy bootcamp in early October to end up with one policy idea you would take with you back home to refine and refurnish—and of course more like-minded friends and networks you have made during the camp.

2. Participate in a three-day follow-up workshop in November to polish your policy idea.

3. Submit a well-thought-out policy mini-paper (6-7 pages) in December to be published in our “Big Book of Small ideas”—a medium that could help bring your policy idea to life.

Who should attend and how? You if you are….

  • Curious about Cambodian development and policy issues.

  • Between 18-25.

  • Highly proficient in reading, writing, and speaking English.

  • Willing and able to commit to the full program.

  • Currently enrolled in or finished a university program.

If this sounds like you, please join us. Download our application form below now. Complete it and send it back to us by September 15, 2019. We will get back to you as soon as we can. Women are strongly encouraged to join us.

Deadline: Sunday 15 September 2019

Special note: This event seeks a diversity of young people who are interested and have the potential to contribute to the public policy debates and only works if you could bring along a few like-minded people. Can you help us by sharing this within your network?
