On 11-14 June 2018, the College of Europe in Natolin hosted a group of students of the Master Program in Public Management of the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) in Lviv. The programme is addressed to students who combine their studies with work in local governance, public institutions or NGOs. Natolin has been supporting the efforts of educating new generations of public servants in Ukraine by co-organizing this study visit for the second time.
During the visit, the group from the UCU had meetings with representatives of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, FRONTEX, the EU funded Cross-border Cooperation Programme Poland-Belarus-Ukraine, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of the Interior and Administration and the Ministry of Investment and Economic Development.
The students also discussed the current state of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement implementation and bilateral Polish-Ukrainian relations. In addition, they had the chance to learn more about the latest developments concerning the EU digital agenda thanks to the input of Natolin based experts.
