30 August 2022

The NHC is now accepting applications for the online Matra Rule of Law Training: “Attitude for Change”, to be held 14 November – 18 December 2022. The deadline for submitting applications is Sunday 23 October, 23:59 CET.

This training is intended for civil servants who want to improve their leadership skills and learn more about ethical leadership. Senior civil servants and policy makers at public institutions from different levels of government charged with the development and implementation of integrity plans and policies for civil servants are invited to apply.

This training is a five week online personal development trajectory in which you can develop your own skills to become a more ethical leader within your institution or specialty. We are looking for motivated and ambitious participants who want to improve their personal leadership skills to achieve change for the societies they represent. Do you want to share your experience, knowledge and skillset with other professionals working for government institutions, are you interested in the topics of core values and ethical leadership and are you open to (group) coaching on the changes you would like to implement? Then we encourage you to apply for this online training.

We accept applications from civil servants from Albania, Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, and Ukraine. The Matra Rule of Law Training Programme is designed to strengthen institutional capacity in the field of rule of law within government organisations. To this end, seven training programmes are offered per year, each introducing the participants to best practices in a wide range of rule of law themes.

Through interactive sessions combining theory and practical skills, policy advisors, members of the judiciary and other civil servants working in the government and justice sectors acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to drive reforms in their home countries. In addition, by taking part in the training programme, participants become part of a large transnational network of alumni, lecturers and relevant government departments in the Netherlands and in the target countries. This network offers a platform for learning, exchange and collaboration.

The Matra Rule of Law Training programme is designed and delivered by Leiden Law School, the Netherlands Helsinki Committee, and The Hague Academy for Local Governance. It is financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.
