Extended Deadline Matra RoLT Training: “Public Finance Management”

09 October 2017

The deadline for the applications for the next Matra Rule of Law Training Programme: “Public Finance Management” (to be held 8 – 17  November)  has been extended. The deadline for submitting applications is Wednesday the 11th of October at 12:00pm (CEST).

This training on Public Finance Management (PFM) is intended for civil servants working in the field of PFM – either in the field of taxation or in Public Expenditure Management. The training offers a tailor-made programme allowing professionals to discuss key issues amongst themselves and with leading academics and experienced colleagues from the Dutch civil service. Part of the programme is offered by the highly reputed National Academy for Finance and Economics of the Dutch Ministry of Finance.

The training is part of the Matra Rule of Law Training Programme, that is designed to strengthen institutional capacity in the field of rule of law within government organisations in Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey, and Ukraine. 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, practical skills and study visits, policy advisors, members of the judiciary and other civil servants working in the 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, initially for a period of two years (2017- 2018).

The deadline for submitting an application is Sunday 8 October. For more information about this training and other Matra Rule of Law training programmes, please click here.
