The Autumn session of Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) Intensive Programme in European Law and Economics for European Neighborhood Policy countries, Central Asia and Western Balkans will start on 11 November 2019.
For the next 6 weeks 26 young professionals representing the public administration, civil society and academic circles of Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, Georgia, Moldova, State of Palestine, Ukraine and Kosovo will study European Law and Economics at the RGSL in Riga. Besides acquiring theoretical knowledge and practical skills, the participants will also visit various public institutions in Latvia and make a study tour to Brussels and Luxembourg to see the work of EU institutions first-hand.
The interdisciplinary programmes in European Law and Economics have been successfully implemented in Latvia since 2014, and they are coordinated by Riga Graduate School of Law. The three-month Advanced Programme and the six-week Intensive Programme are part-financed from the development assistance policy funds earmarked in the budget of Latvia. Contributions have been provided by Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA. Over 300 students from the European Neighbourhood Policy countries, Central Asia and the Western Balkans have graduated from both programmes since 2014. They will be able to apply their newly acquired knowledge and experience towards the promotion of growth in their home countries.
The three-month Advanced Programme in European Law and Economics is also being implemented in 2019 with financial support from the Norwegian government.
