Regional Leadership School for Young Political Leaders
The Regional Leadership School for Young Political Leaders is an extension of the Leadership School for Young Political Leaders, a project implemented by the ADEPT Association starting 1999. The Regional Leadership School addresses youth wings of parties and social-political movements from the regions North (Balti), South (Cahul) and Administrative-Territorial Unit Gagauzia (Comrat) of the Republic of Moldova and/or students from social sciences who have leadership skills and want to be involved in the political life.
By organising the RLSYPL, ADEPT wants to help strengthen political parties in Moldova by permanently boosting the education of young political leaders from various regions of the country and by promoting democratic values of a multi-party system. Another important objective is building a harmony of interests between youth wings of political parties from Moldova, promoting compromise and mutual tolerance as the only viable solutions to interparty conflicts.
The Regional Leadership School for Young Political Leaders includes 5 modules which particularly focus on the system of parties and social-political movements from Moldova, as well as on elections in our country. In addition, the school tackles issues relating to communication, leadership skills, the European integration of the Republic of Moldova, state economic policies; the Transnistrian conflict settlement process etc.
Members of territorial organisations of 7 political parties and civil society representatives from the regions North (Balti), South (Cahul) and Administrative-Territorial Unit Gagauzia (Comrat) were selected for the 2011–2012 edition of the Regional Leadership School.
Local civil servants, researchers and scientists, political and economic analysts, politicians from Moldova teach RLSYPL students.
