This Executive Training Seminar, organized by the School of Transnational Governance, provides an in-depth analysis on how regional organizations across the globe respond to the challenges posed by authoritarian governments and illiberal democracies in their member states. Specifically, organizations such as the European Union, the Organization of American States, and the African Union are increasingly challenged by the rise of populist political discourses and the coexistence of a variety of authoritarianisms and defective democracies in their regions of influence.

Participants will acquire first-hand knowledge of the substantive content of the different mechanisms for the protection of democracy in regional organizations in Europe, America and Africa. They will also actively learn about the internal functioning of these organizations and the policy effects of their application by examining concrete case studies.

Throughout the training seminar, participants will have the opportunity to network with a set of top officials and experts from regional and international organizations, such as the African Union and Organization of American States, as well as with senior practitioners from NGOs and like-minded colleagues from all over the world.

Participation is by application only. (deadline 16 October)

Please apply by emailing your CV and Motivation letter to Silvia Dell'Acqua (details below).

Fees: 1,300 € (10% reduction for early registrations)

A discount of 25% will be applied to the charges for international European and national civil servants, as well as to members of the NGOs.

Full or partial fee-waivers will be available. Moreover a number of scholarships will be awarded on merit or needs basis.

The fees cover the cost of the course as well as coffee and lunch breaks. Travel and hotel costs are not included in the fees.
