On 14 - 16 October Riga Graduate School of Law, in cooperation with the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Transparency International Latvia organises a training programme for the representatives of public administration and non-governmental organisations of Ukraine “Implementing transparency and good governance: the Latvian experience for Ukraine”. 12 participants of the programme are working with policy development and direct implementation in the areas of transparency and good governance in Ukraine.
Latvia has undergone a profound transition from being one of the former Socialist Republics to becoming a full-fledged member state of the European Union. It has accumulated extensive experience in setting up governmental structures, implementing international obligations and monitoring that helps to prevent and fight against corruption. This knowledge, transferred from the personal experience, can be successfully utilised by other countries with a similar past and shared aspirations.
