Extended deadline: Application Procedure Open for Matra Rule of Law Training Programme

14 March 2017

The NHC is now accepting applications for the Matra Rule of Law Training Programme “Integrity of civil servants”. The training, which will take place from 10 – 19 May, 2017, will address the challenges corruption presents for the rule of law and good governance in Europe. The new deadline for submitting applications is Monday March 27.

The Matra Rule of Law Training Programme is a two-year (2017 – 2018) programme designed and delivered by the Netherlands Helsinki Committee, Leiden Law School, and The Hague Academy for Local Governance, and is financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. It is designed to strengthen institutional capacity in the field of Rule of Law within government organisations in the Western Balkans, Turkey, Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova. Seven training programmes are offered per year, each introducing the participants to Dutch best practices in a wide range of rule of law themes.

Through interactive sessions combining theory, practical skills and study visits, civil servants and other professionals working in the government and justice sectors will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to manage and communicate about integrity dilemmas, and to drive reforms in their home countries. The programme is also an opportunity for participants to 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.
