Two-week training programme on

21 November – 2 December, 2011, The Hague,
The Netherlands 
The primary objective of the course is to train senior civil servants (legal experts and policy makers) in the various basic principles of the legislative process and in those areas of relevance for dealing with the EU acquis such that the course participants are equipped with knowledge, insights and practical skills that will enable them to develop their legal order and legislative processes back home in line with the best practices from the Netherlands and the EU.
A secondary (dual) objective is to raise awareness about the specificities and commonalities of neighbouring countries’ legislation and legislative processes and to advance interaction (promote networking) among the participants and between them and their Dutch counterparts, such that the effect is to stimulate and strengthen the legislative cooperation and information sharing with and between the participating countries.
This training is intended for Senior Civil servants (experts and policy makers) with relevant working experience in the area concerned from the various line ministries in the new EU member states and (potential) candidate countries.
The Netherlands Government will provide full fellowships to selected participants.
*Each fellowship will cover the cost of international travel (economy), board and lodging, visa and insurance, tuition fees, lecture materials and excursions insofar as included in the programme.
