Role of a YPG Fellow

Roles of YPG Fellows

During the progression of the fellowship, Fellows will get the opportunity to participate with professionals from distinct sectors and understand significant policy and development issues.

The Fellow's primary task includes delivering research support to the Member of Province Assembly (MPA’s) that she/he is assigned. Fellows will undertake a significant level of research related to the Provincial Assembly, such as inputs for bills, parliamentary questions, policy discussions, etc. Furthermore, YPG Fellows are requisite to deliver background research for the discussions and media events MPA’s attend in their official capacity. While some MPA’s may delegate constituency-related work to their YPG Fellows, signing up for such work (including visits to the constituency) is subject the agreement between the MPA’s and the YPG Fellow. However, these works should not solicit personal benefits for the MPA’s.

Research of YPG fellows focuses on diverse issues such as public service delivery, good governance, environmental issues, economics, and foreign relations. Research tasks may include

Parliamentary Research
Data Analysis
Framing policy-specific issues
Background research for discussions and media events
Research for state parliamentary sub-committee meetings
Media-related work including drafting press releases, preparing interventions for TV appearances
Research for constituency-related issues
Interacting with stakeholders

YPG Fellows rarely have a usual work day. Requests for research may have varying limits - ranging from thirty minutes to a week, depending on the requirements of the MPA’s. When the state parliament is in session, the workload is likely to be busier than the time period between sessions.
