A few words about myself
Since 2007 I am regularly involved in evaluation projects of youth policy of Latvia and in consultations on development of youth policy for state and local government institutions. Besides, since 2010 I am a national correspondent of Latvia – youth policy expert in the European Knowledge Centre for Youth Policy. Since the year 2010 under the order of the Ministry of Education and Science I elaborated the annual assessment of youth policy implementation in Latvia, results of which are used in developing action plan of youth policy for the following year. In 2013, in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science I was a project manager of midterm evaluation of the Latvian Youth Policy Guidelines 2009-2018, as well as of data and information collection of Latvian youth researches for the past five years period (a publication is available at: (in Latvian)). In 2013, together with the associate professor of the Latvian Academy of Culture Anda Lake we developed recommendations for necessary improvements for Latvian youth policy and prepared proposals for improvements of the system of youth policy implementation result indicators.
