From December 7–10 2017, the DGAP’s MENA Program hosts a workshop in Berlin, which focuses on the promotion of think tank work on migration and socio-economic challenges in Morocco. The workshop is the first of two workshops that give participants the opportunity to analyze and tackle complex issues related to socio-economic development and migration in Morocco through discussions with experts and the presentation of their own policy papers and policy recommendations. In addition, participants will receive training in policy paper writing.

Participants will attend a second workshop in Rabat from March 15–18 2018, during which the finalized policy papers will be discussed with relevant Moroccan and European decision-makers. Moreover, participants will complete a training in policy advocacy and communication.

The workshop is organized in cooperation with the Rabat Social Studies Institute (RSSI) and funding by the German Federal Foreign Office, the Institute for International Cultural Relations (ifa), and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.

The workshop in Berlin is part of the DGAP MENA Program’s project on the promotion of think tank work in the Middle East and North Africa, which aims to strengthen the scholarly and technical capacities of civil society actors in the region and the EU who are engaged in research and policy analysis and advice.

The project’s objectives are: 1) analysis of pressing issues and developments in selected countries and the region as a whole; 2) training to develop new and enhance existing capacities in the field of policy analysis and advice; 3) networking with peers and political decision-makers to exchange experiences and increase visibility and credibility.
