Since 2001, the German government’s Caucasus Initiative has promoted cross-border cooperation between the South Caucasus countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. In 2015, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is sponsoring a regional academy for the 6th time.
The Regional Academy aims to create a scientific and practice-oriented atmosphere which will facilitate a professional dialogue and intensive exchange of information among the participants. All courses are taught in English.
Up to a total of 25 participants from all three countries will engage in a legal dialogue on legal transformation in the South Caucasus and will intensifiy their legal knowledge and legal practice skills.
In recent years, the regional academy was held at the beginning of the year and was called “Winter Academy”.
As this year’s academy will take place in summer and is intended to be independent of seasons, GIZ decided to call it “Regional Academy” from now on.
The Regional Academy is targeted at lawyers from the South Caucasus with the following profile:
- completed university degree in law,
- at least two years work experience in Armenia, Azerbaijan or Georgia,
- involvement in legal and judicial reforms in the area of civil, commercial or administrative law (Civil Society, Public or Private sector)
- between 24 and 35 years of age,
- interested in foreign law concepts,
- very good knowledge of the English language.
