Advanced political education

The need to further develop capacities of the holders of political power in Serbia has never been greater. In order to meet ever increasing requests arising from the accession process to the European Union, being the dominant framework for the modernization of our society, it has become necessary to further improve and adapt political education programs.

Our intention is to offer a comprehensive program that is adapted to the actual needs and challenges met at both local and national level of government, while appreciating the experiences of our alumni and avoiding ex cathedra approach.

To this end, BFPE will continue to implement methods of reform compass (in cooperation with Bertelsmann Foundation) and strategic foresight; case studies, (decision-making) simulations, as well as other interactive work methods.

We implement our activities through following programs: Annual Seminar, Regional Policy Academy (as continuation to the Regional Academy for Democracy) and Women’s Leadership Academy.

BFPE recognizes as its key, traditional partners in this program area the Council of Europe, Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies, the European Fund for the Balkans, the British and Canadian Embassy in Serbia as well as the USAID.
