The Konrad Adenauer School for Young Politicians (KASYP) programme was conceptualised and first implemented in 2010. The programme is designed to strengthen political parties in Asia and to develop a cadre of accountable and responsible young political leaders.
Why Political Parties?
- Perform the important function of selecting political candidates, forming government leadership, representing civic interests and developing the national agenda.
- A highly organised political party, with clear ideologies and values would be able to effectively link the state and society.
Along with the main aim to strengthen political parties in Asia, the trainings are planned to:
- Enhance participant's knowledge of political theories, concepts
- Impart political skills in leadership and communication
Provide project planning and management workshops with our in-house trainer to execute political projects in their respective parties/constituencies over the course of the first year of the programme
