The Goerdeler-Kolleg for Good Governance invites you to gain further qualification in seminars, actively participate in discussions and project workshops, establish contacts in Germany and Central and Eastern European countries and contribute to the development of Good Governance and administrative reforms.

The Goerdeler-Kolleg will focus on the following:
Acting responsibly: The participants are trained in the fields of administrative reforms and modernization as well as Good Governance.
Looking behind the scenes: The participants get to know examples of management and communication in Germany and the EU. They are able to gain exclusive insights into the political life and establish contacts.
Create sustainably: The participants develop their own project with reference to their home institution. During the seminar, the project is developed and then put into practice thereafter. The participants present their project results at the beginning of the next Goerdeler-Kolleg in Berlin in 2012.

Günter Verheugen, former vice president of the European Commission, accompanies the participants as director of the Goerdeler-Kolleg.

The Goerdeler-Kolleg is conducted as a joint project with the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and the Representation of the European Commission in Germany.

The working language is German. If necessary, the participants are able to take part in a German language refresher course that will take place in Germany from August 29 to September 10, 2011.
