Best Course Studies in Africa 2017. People negotiate daily. As a matter of fact negotiation happens several times a day. Despite the frequency of negotiations few people know how to negotiate well and achieve the most optimal outcomes. Many people believe that good negotiators are born. However, in reality anyone can improve their negotiation skills very considerably through training. At the Center for Public Policy and Competitiveness, we teach a negotiation framework that has proved effective both locally and globally. In the current public policy context leaders often need to manage change and this requires incorporating of multiple stakeholders interests which requires excellent negotiation skills. The challenges faced in negotiating with Senators, Governors, Executive Directors and Union staff have one unique technical difficulty- your opponent in one issue may be an ally in the next. Oftentimes public meetings are contentious or participants are deeply divided along issues of resources, values or even identity. Diffusing contentious situations and arriving at a workable solution is both an art and a science that requires a specific set of skills and practice. Individuals involved in analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy need to know the fundamentals of negotiations. They not only need to have the goal in mind, but they must also know how they will achieve the goal. Reaching the goal requires them to know how to say “no” while maintaining a relationship, how to close a deal on time-not too early nor too late, how to present the main interests clearly, how to balance transparency, public disclosure and citizen participation with discretion. Who Should Attend? This course will be beneficial to individuals involved analysis, formulation and implementation of public policy such as Government officers, County Government officials, NGOs and international organizations. It is for people who want to improve their negotiation performance and enhance the quality in relation public policy negotiations. [-]

This course is designed for senior managers who are actively involved in planning, management and evaluation of health sector reforms in developing countries.

[+]

Best Course Studies in Africa 2017. This course is designed for senior managers who are actively involved in planning, management and evaluation of health sector reforms in developing countries. These senior managers may be working either in Ministries of Health; or they may be staff of embassies, international organisations, or NGOs developing partnerships with Ministries of Health within health reform. In this two week course held at the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam (KIT) participants learn more about the most important topics in health policy, planning and financing, their effects on equity and efficiency, and their relation to the strengthening of health systems. This year the course will focus on reform in relation to Universal Health Coverage (UHC). *this course was formerly known as advanced course on Health Sector Reforms and Financing: towards universal health coverage Content Health systems in countries all over the world are facing challenges in order to meet the increasing needs and demands of their citizens. Since the new millennium, the international community has engaged in an active debate on how to ensure ‘access to good quality services according to needs and preferences, regardless of income level, social status, gender or residency’. WHO devoted the World Health Report of 2010 to ‘Universal Health Coverage’ sparking worldwide discussion. WHO has urged countries to move towards financing systems based on pre-payment in order to protect people from catastrophic expenditure and impoverishment while accessing health care services. In reality, low and middle income countries still largely depend on out-of-pocket payments for their health system funding. Despite global international investment most low-income countries will continue to depend on external assistance to achieve UHC. Achieving UHC requires that attention be paid not just to financial arrangements but also to addressing non-financial barriers to accessing services, such as geographical and cultural barriers, and problems of quality of care. Whilst aiming for UHC we also need to look at how resources can be allocated more efficiently. We are not just planning for health care but for all aspects of health and all its determining and contributing factors. This has to be done without marginalising the ‘bottom billion’: the poorest of the poor. We need to examine how health systems are performing in all their constituent parts. What do we know from experience? What is the best evidence we have for that? How do we translate such knowledge into policy? How does one convince policymakers who have so many interests to safeguard? Objectives This short course aims to help participants understand the context and scope of current reforms and financing options in the health sector of developing countries, with a particular focus on Universal Health Coverage. Course Content The following subjects are reviewed during the course: Introduction to health sector reform and UHC Introduction and comparative (dis)advantages of different modes of health systems financing External aid: its macro-economic effects and the challenges of raising additional domestic resources for UHC Demand side barriers to UHC Quality of care and Universal Health Coverage Operational challenges in implementing Social Health Insurance in LIC Provider payment Mechanisms and Results-based Financing Organisational reforms and their relation to UHC: Decentralisation, Privatisation, Integration of services, Health reforms and their impact on equity and inequalities Voice and accountability: How are the people involved in governance issues relating to UHC? The policy process and UHC. Measuring progress towards UHC Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), Health in All Policies (HiAP) and their relation to health systems (financing) Human Resources for Health: How will the HR crisis affect UHC? Learning methods The course consists of introductory lectures, exercises, case studies and interactive group discussions building on participants’ experiences with the respective topics and issues. A reader will be provided with essential literature that must be read before each class session. Assessment For participants who wish to be examined a paper or exam can be provided. tropEd students must take an exam at the end of the course. Accreditation This course is accredited by tropEd. It can be taken as an advanced module for the Master in International Health programme organised by TropEd, a network of European institutions for higher education in international health. Facilitators KIT has over 50 years of experience with courses and training workshops. All facilitators have a broad international experience as teachers and researchers and have written several publications. [-]

“Outstanding lawyers and a sound legal system are prerequisites of any civilized society. The legal system provides the rules within which the state’s administration, the business world, individuals and organizations, indeed the whole community operate. In any country in which the law reigns supreme, lawyers must apply legal rules and act as watch dogs to ensure that everyone adheres to the norms of society. Because the law plays an immense and far-reaching role, legal studies cover a wide and exiting field: the rules of the tough business world and the business entities operating within it, the protection of human rights, intimate family relationships, the prosecution of criminals and the conclusions of contracts, to name but a few.” These are the words of the dean of the Faculty of Law, Prof Patrick O’Brien.

[+]

Best Course Studies in Africa 2017. A new Postgraduate Diploma programme in Endangered Species Recovery is currently being developed by DICE that will capitalise on its long-standing links with the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (Durrell) and the Mauritius Wildlife Foundation (MWF). Students registered on this University of Kent diploma will be based entirely on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean where they will be immersed within a world-renowned species and habitat restoration programme, spear-headed by MWF in collaboration with Durrell. This exciting and novel approach to postgraduate training will enable students to learn cutting-edge conservation techniques and gain world-class hands-on experience in the field. Distinctive Features This unique programme, which will combine an academic qualification with intensive in situ fieldwork experience on Mauritius, will be administered as one of DICEs portfolio of postgraduate programmes in conservation science and management within the School of Anthropology and Conservation. Durrell is one of the foremost species conservation organisations in the world, having recovered many endangered species from critically low numbers through intensive, hands-on species management. Durrell therefore compliments DICE’s academic credentials with its evidence-based species recovery efforts on the ground. Both DICE and Durrell have a long-term partnership in conservation research and training with MWF, the organisation which has successfully led the recovery efforts for a large number of threatened endemic species. MWF’s work has already saved a minimum of five endemic species from extinction, as well as pioneering ecosystem recovery techniques for restoring whole-island ecosystems. Students on this new University of Kent programme will benefit from the practical, evidence-based approach to conservation that is the hallmark of Durrell and MWF, alongside the international academic reputation of DICE. You will learn through hands-on practical training the cutting-edge field techniques involved in endangered species recovery and habitat restoration. In addition you will learn the leadership, management and facilitation skills you will need to run your own conservation projects. Students will complete the programme equipped in the theory and practice of endangered species and habitat recovery, having acquired field experience in one of the world’s most successful species and habitat restoration programmes. Qualifications in Conservation are: PGDip taken over six months, expected to commence in March each year The course consistes of four taught modules with associated components of self-directed study, and one module that consists of a series of field techniques and skills-development workshops interspersed with components of self-directed study throughout the programme.

ALA Model African Union Course

African Leadership Academy
Campus Full time 5 days March 2017 South Africa Honeydew

African Leadership Academy Model African Union (ALAMAU) is a simulation of the African Union, providing a platform for young leaders to explore the inner workings of the African Union, and to practice international diplomacy by assuming the roles of African leaders. [+]

Best Course Studies in Africa 2017. About us African Leadership Academy Model African Union (ALAMAU) is a simulation of the African Union, providing a platform for young leaders aged 14 to 19 to explore the inner workings of the African Union, and to practice international diplomacy by assuming the roles of African leaders. This conference affords delegates the opportunity to study complex African issues, understand the interests and positions of African countries, and learn to successfully negotiate without compromising national interests. ALAMAU aims to empower young leaders to model international cooperation while celebrating diversity and promoting pan-African unity. ALAMAU 2015 will be held from March 18-22, 2015 as young leaders attempt to resolve, in five days of intense brainstorming and negotiations, some of the longest-running and most complicated issues on the continent. The conference experience will, however, not be limited to committee sessions; through keynote presentations by African Union officials and foreign policy experts, a diplomatic roundtable featuring ambassadors from several countries, educational tours to historic sites and a celebration of cultural diversity through the Cultural Night, delegates will experience a highly intellectual, educative and exciting conference. There will also be a parallel conference for international educators accompanying students to the conference, as they will be exposed to presentations by several thought-leaders in Africa, and engaged in peer learning geared towards developing the next generation of diplomatic African leaders. Building on a successful inaugural conference in April 2014 on the theme ‘Shared Challenges, Common Solutions’, delegates to ALAMAU 2015 will focus on ‘Moving from Potential to Action’. Africa has long been identified as a gold mine of opportunities, yet conversations often dwell too strongly on the continent’s potential without implementable action plans or definite steps taken to ensure the continent’s development. With the continent’s youthful population, abundant natural and human resources, and the rapid growth of our local economies, Africa is indeed ready to take off. This conference provides a unique opportunity for young leaders to develop strategies to enable us utilize our vast resources to achieve holistic human-centred Pan-African growth. ACTIVITIES AT ALAMAU 2015 Committee Sessions At ALAMAU 2015, seven organs and subsidiary bodies of the African Union will be simulated. Each committee session will last for three hours and will mainly include speeches and caucus negotiations, ultimately culminating in a resolution drafted to solve the issue for which the committee was convened. Prior to the conference, delegates would have studied widely on their assigned countries and topics, ensuring that they make well-informed recommendations that will promote development across the continent. Diplomatic Reception & Roundtable Delegates to ALAMAU 2015 will be drawn from several countries within and outside Africa; therefore as part of their diplomatic experience at ALAMAU, they will be afforded the opportunity to interact with and learn from several African ambassadors in a cocktail reception. The ambassadors will subsequently engage in a roundtable discussion to e realities of international diplomacy. Faculty Advisor Speaker Series Each delegation to ALAMAU 2015 will be accompanied by a faculty member, who might be a teacher in the humanities or one who maintains significant interest in international affairs. Educational Tours South Africa is home to several historic and educational sites including the Apartheid Museum and Cradle of Humankind. As part of the conference experience, delegates and advisors will have the opportunity to visit some of these historic sites, affording them a good break from intense committee sessions, while providing an opportunity to strengthening friendships. Cultural Night Considering the diversity of nationalities and cultures that will be represented at ALAMAU, delegated will be engaged in a celebration of all represented cultures at our Africa-themed Cultural Night. Participants will witness a fusion of music, food, fashion, dance, drama and poetry that highlight the uniqueness of different cultures from all regions of Africa. [-]
