Leadership for Syria - Capacity building for future Syrian leaders
As of Autumn 2016, 190 Syrian DAAD scholarship holders have been taking part in a training programme at the University of Konstanz. The fundamental aim of this project is to prepare the participants in a variety of ways for a post-war Syria. The key focuses of the programme are in good governance, democratization and plurality. The organization is co-ordinated mainly by the department, with technical support of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. The training is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the government of North Rhine-Westphalia.
