Regional Academy for Democracy's study visit in 2014 will be undertaken in the region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol (Italy), in cooperation with our colleagues from the Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso.

Our list of topics so far includes:

  • Local institution-building;
  • Subnational approaches to community integration across national borders;
  • Impact of EU regional policies;
  • Management of linguistic and national diversity on the local level.

Attached you may find the agenda, and a short info note on the context and historical developments that led to South Tyrol's autonomy - as it exists today, along with the key logistics information.
