DIPLOCAT and IBEI organise a course entitled “Action in European and international bodies”

The course will start in October, has restricted access and is intended for individuals who for professional reasons need to maintain relations with European Union and international bodies

In the last quarter of this year, DIPLOCAT and the Barcelona Institute of International Studies (IBEI) will jointly organise a course entitled "Action in European and international bodies", in collaboration with the Catalan Ministry of Foreign Action and Open Government and the Public Administration School of Catalonia.

This training course is not open to the general public and has limited places, being intended exclusively for the staff of public administrations in Catalonia and of the entities that are members of DIPLOCAT. The course is especially conceived to train individuals who for professional reasons need to act or maintain relations with international bodies, representing and defending their own entities' interests competently, effectively and flexibly.

The course will focus on practical aspects and the examination of cases of best practice as a means of understanding the way in which these international bodies behave and operate. The objective is to encourage interaction with international bodies and to strengthen trainees' ability to negotiate with such bodies and to maintain natural relations with them: how to contact them, how to influence them, how to get to know them and how to obtain the best results when working with them.
