CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
With this urgency in mind the Robert Schuman Institute in cooperation with its partners including the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Belarus, the International Republican Institute, the Eduardo Frei Foundation and EDUCATIO: Institute for Development and Training is organizing a series of course titled “Leaders in Democracy I-II” for 15 representatives of Belarusian political (center-right), civic and student organizations with the purpose of having them better equipped to continue their fight for a democratic Belarus and strengthen European partnerships.
The main objective of the event is to offer value-based perspective on development for the future political and civic elites of Belarus of the center-right wing, committed to the European integration / fruitful EU-Belarusian partnership. This is to be achieved by introducing and debating fundamentals of democracy, campaigning and political communication as a tool, organization building and the role of civil society. Another important objective is to support the interaction of the Belarusian participants with likeminded communities by connecting with representatives of different center-right organizations in Europe (such as CDA/EFF, KAS/CDU, etc.), to give them a chance to learn from each others’ experiences and current issues of concern.
