TRAINING PROGRAMME “INTEGRITY OF CIVIL SERVANTS IN IN PRE-ACCESSION COUNTRIES” ORGANISED BY THE HAGUE ACCADEMY (18 - 28 November 2012, The Hague, NL)
The Hague Academy for local governance is organising a new training course in the field of ethics & integrity, to support the transition process in eight candidate EU-countries (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey), commissioned by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Europe Department (DEU).
Target groups of the training (18 - 28 November, 2012) are civil servants dealing with this subject at different government levels. Participation is fully funded by the Dutch government. Deadline for application is 14 October. Apply through www.asser.nl/matrapatrol.
This training is intended for senior civil servants (experts and policy makers) involved in designing, implementing and enforcing policies for integrity of civil servants in their respective countries, with good speaking and writing capabilities in English.
Each fellowship, provided by the Netherlands Government, will cover the cost of international travel (economy), board and lodging in The Hague, visa and insurance, tuition fees, lecture materials, field trips and excursions.
Training venue will be The Hague Academy for Local Governance, The Hague, The Netherlands.
The aim of this programme is to aid institutional capacity building in the fields of Rule of Law within the government in the target countries. Another objective is the creation of transnational networks, to promote the exchange of knowledge and future collaboration between the participants.
The training will offer a combination of theory and lectures, skills development and field trips.
This training programme aims to stimulate, support and contribute to the efficient implementation of the EU Acquis in the area of ‘rule of law’ and to strengthen relations between the Netherlands and the target countries by sharing the necessary knowledge and skills with policy advisors, members of the judiciary and other civil servants.
The Copenhagen criteria for accessing the European Union require stable government institutions that guarantee democracy, rule of law and human rights. Policies to promote the integrity of civil servants will support candidate EU-countries in their efforts to meet these criteria. Not only will integrity policies promote the stability, transparancy and accountability of their institutions, they are also an important condition for economic growth.
