The Georgian Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA) will host a conference in Tbilisi, February 23-25, 2017, entitled, “Good Governance: Promoting Democratic Values and Practices Through Education.” Speakers will address four areas in which higher education can provide essential preparation for those who will enter the public service to include curriculum and academic program development, leadership and governance skills development, methods for teaching practices associated with good governance, and issues related to ethical behavior and corruption avoidance. While the focus will be on the Trans Caucasus region, participants from other areas in Central and Eastern Europe as well as those from other locations would be welcome.
