🇪🇺On February 17, 2024, the Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies (Rondeli Foundation) launched the school for young political party staffers. The school is a part of the EU-funded project ”Supporting Free and Fair Elections Cycle in Georgia.”The cohort of young politicians commenced their ice-breaking meeting with training in Negotiation Techniques and Political Risk Analysis and discussed the pressing topic of Women in Politics.

The current cohort involves 28 young representatives from 14 political parties, both parliamentary and non-parliamentary. Throughout the three-month course, the group will attend a series of lectures covering diverse topics from policy analysis to foreign policy, economics, and other nationwide issues.

The primary goal of the political party school is to empower young party staffers by enhancing their skills and knowledge, enabling them to actively contribute to the policymaking process within their respective parties. GFSIS aims to help create a network of young politicians within different political parties implementing effective policies addressing the needs of the population.

The project is funded by the European Union in Georgia.
