“The SDL is the most prominent platform of informal education in Montenegro. In 15 generations of the School, we have created a great alumni Network, with a number of current MPs, members of Government, leaders of NGOs and religious communities, as well as some of the most prominent journalists.”

About the School

The School of Political Studies- Montenegro is envisaged as a form of additional education; a framework for achieving new theoretical and practical knowledge and techniques that will provide participants more professional, efficient, and modern performance of the public jobs they are engaged in.

The aim is to create a new political elite in Montenegro, consisting of competent, efficient politicians and social activists who are capable of drawing on knowledge, facts and skills to guide their work. They should better understand the fundamental values which form the basis of democratic societies and European integration.

Three key problematics that the programme focuses on are reforms for Montenegro, working successfully within a political party and European integration. In this way, the School contributes to the improved organisation of the work of political parties, the implementation of democratic reforms, positive transformations in Montenegrin society and the better positioning of our country in a new and expanded Europe. At the same time, the School hopes to fill a new space opening up in Montenegro for a critical look at the possibilities and limitations of transitional processes.

The School’s programme consists of 5 main modules:

    ·    European integration

    ·    Rule of Law

    ·    Human Rights

    ·    Responsible institutions and leadership skills

    ·    World Forum for Democracy in Strasbourg.

Those interested in participating should contact the School directly.
