The Georgian Institute for Strategic Studies (GISS), with funding from Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is implementing its flagship project Tbilisi Transformational Leadership Forum (TTLF) 2018.
TTLF 2018 is a continuation of TTLF 2016 and 2014. The goal of the project is to design a leadership program for young leaders from the Eastern Partnership (EaP) and four EU member states to improve their understanding about political and economic transformations, deepen their knowledge about political, security, economic, and social dynamics in EaP and beyond.
The program provides a unique forum for emerging leaders to connect, exchange experiences, and obtain practical training to advance their knowledge and skill set. Leading speakers from governments, think tanks, businesses, international organizations and academia will provide practitioners viewpoint on important issues related to evolving political, social and economic dynamics in EU member states as well as EaP countries.
The project consists of the following stages:
- Stage A: Forum that will be hosted by GISS in Tbilisi, Georgia
- Stage B: Study trip to Stockholm, Sweden
During the study trip to Sweden participants will have a chance to interact with local opinion-makers and practitioners in order to get a first-hand exposure to the best practices associated with Sweden. Only participants from the EaP countries will be invited to participate in the study trip.
