Matra Rule of Law Training Programme

The general aim of this training programme is to promote institutional capacity building in the fields of Rule of Law within the government organisation in the target countries. This is done by sharing the necessary knowledge and skills with policy advisors, members of the judiciary and other civil servants working in the government and justice sectors and helping them to lead and inspire the modernisation of the judicial systems of their home countries building from the Dutch experience. The training also aims to create transnational networks to promote the exchange of knowledge and future collaboration between the participants and between the participants and the (guest) lecturers and relevant government departments.

The programme is divided into two sub-programmes. The Integrity of Civil Servants programme aims to increase understanding of the international and EU framework for integrity policy and the national context of the participants´ countries. The Decentralisation and Citizen Participation programme is directed at increasing the knowledge and skills of the participants to promote decentralisation and citizen participation within their national contexts.
