days of the Communication Policy Research south (CPRsouth) conference that

of a low- or middle-income country in Africa or Asia (
country-and-lending-groups#Low_income) , we will cover:

Send us your completed application by: Tuesday, 15 May 2018

The objective of the program is to prepare Asia-Pacific or Africa based
experts capable of contributing to ICT related policy and regulatory reform
in the region. The tutorials will cover the topics of communication policy
research, research to policy process, and policy research methods with the
participants applying the concepts to their own research proposals
throughout. A fully developed research proposal is expected from each
participant at the end of the program. Participation in the conference
which follows is compulsory since it will expose young scholars to a range
of topics in communication policy.

presented at the conference are not eligible. Preference will be given to
those under the age of 35. Selection will take into account gender and
geographical representation.
