The North African Policy Initiative is an independent, non-profit, and non-partisan association based in Tunis. NAPI seeks to improve the quality of public policy in North African countries and increase the active participation of youth in their elaboration. Thus, NAPI fosters and supports the production of evidence-based research, the articulation of policy analysis and recommendations in excellent writing, their dissemination in three languages (Arabic, English, and French), and their promotion through effective public communication and advocacy.
NAPI envisions the large, active, and fruitful participation of North African youth in the elaboration of public policies that will shape their community, country, and region.
NAPI seeks to enable a generation of North African youth to carry out rigorous research, articulate evidence-based policy advice, and convey it effectively. To achieve this objective, NAPI trains civil society activists across North Africa, connects them with each other, and fosters policy dialogue through thematic roundtables. Furthermore, NAPI supports the most knowledgeable and engaged youth to become policy leaders through training and mentorship.
NAPI’s objectives are to:
- Build the capacity of youth
- Produce evidence-based policy research and analysis
- Foster policy discussion and enlarge policy discussion circles
- Foster regional dialogue and South-South cooperation
