This option can be considered for schools/academies of public administration;
  • The European School of Eastern Partnership in Tbilisi can serve as a source of inspiration when organizing the Academy of Public Administration of Eastern Partnership Countries, with the headquarters being located on the territories of one of the Partnership Countries. The branches can be established in other countries as well, if possible;

By improving any of these components one can change their management potential as a whole.”
