Konrad Adenauer School for Young Politicians (KASYP) – Batch 13 - Regional Programme Political Dialogue Asia
After a hiatus of 2 years from conducting in-person meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased that the 2nd training-workshop of the Konrad Adenauer School for Young Politicians (KASYP) on "Election Campaigning" will be organized this coming 20-26 November 2022 in Singapore.
The KASYP is a two-year programme with two workshops a year focusing on four different political and policy themes. This coming November 2022, we will meet in-person with the fellows of KASYP batch 13 who are young politicians from ten different Asian countries, namely Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Taiwan to undergo the training on “Election Campaigning”.
For the second module, the main objective is to provide participants with the understanding and skills of electoral campaigning and its many tools as well as the importance of providing organized electoral choices to citizens through political parties, and training on democratic leadership (second session on co-ownership).
The core topics for this module will cover electoral campaigning for political parties and electoral systems in Asia, and campaigning strategies for political parties. Meanwhile, elective topics may include social media, freedom of speech, disinformation, statistics for politicians, big data, electoral engineering, etc. For the skills domain, there will be an election campaigning simulation and campaign planning training. The affective domain will continue with the second session of the BDL. For this session, the participants will tackle the topic on co-ownership.
The outputs for this module are the election campaign plan and the BDL assignments. Participants are expected to meet around April for the third module in another Asian country.
We wish the fellows of KASYP Batch 13 an enjoyable, successful, and meaningful KASYP training programme!
