The School will provide participants with the opportunity to establish a regional network of like-minded leaders, ready to take on greater responsibility for a more mature political culture in Central Europe and stronger leadership within the European Union. The program will support the Council of Europe mission of reinforcing democracy, human rights and rule of law on the European continent.
