Policy Programs

The Public Policy Programs of the Aspen Institute Romania seek to improve the formation of policy through transparent, non-partisan, evidence-based, multiple stakeholders’ dialogue. Based on the Aspen Method, our programs offer public decision-makers, private stakeholders and representatives of the non-governmental and academic sectors an exceptional platform for reflection, aiming to reach consensus on concrete policy recommendations in Romania’s most relevant policy fields.

By engaging with public decision-makers from the start of the reflection process, in an informal and informed dialogue, mutual ownership of our policy recommendations is fostered.

Under the framework of our programs, after establishing a dedicated program community of approximately 25 – 30 leaders from the public, private, non-governmental and academic sector, we aim to achieve during a program iteration the following deliverables:

  • Establish a Program Taskforce of program partners, identifying the program themes and the agenda of program activities;
  • Thematic closed doors and public workshops debating the main themes established in the task force;
  • A White Paper with policy recommendations to the relevant decision-makers, based on the conclusions of the discussions taking place during the thematic program workshops, to be presented to the relevant decision-makers during a prominent international public setting;
  • A Public International Event presenting the program outcomes and recommendations to a broader audience and to the general public;
  • A Custom Aspen Leadership Seminar, challenging the members of the program community (including public decision-makers) to debate contemporary key challenges faced by leaders from that particular sector.

Counting on the constant engagement of the wider AIR community, composed of members, fellows and alumni in contributing with their vast expertise to the success, depth and outreach of our programs, we warmly encourage all interested parties to join our Policy Programs.
