Barcelona'gov offers new courses between October and December 2017

The Barcelona City Council, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (through the Institut de Govern i Polítiques Públiques), the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (through the Faculty of Political Science and Social) and the IBEI, have signed the agreement that renews and updates the Barcelona’gov network. In this new stage there will be a wide range of courses to address very relevant issues for the politics and management of cities, paying special attention to social policies, new forms of local governance and international relations of the cities.

This training offer is mainly aimed at professionals and public policy makers (elected representatives, technicians, corporations, consulting companies, third sector, organized civil society and professionals) of large and medium cities in Spain, Latin America, Europe and North Africa.

The aim of these courses is to go beyond mere teaching, since they also include study visits to institutions and entities of Barcelona that are carrying out innovative practices. The idea is that an enriching dialogue between theory and practice can be established, as well as among professionals from different countries.

All the courses are of 30 hours (18 of teaching + 12 of visits of study, approximately), distributed in 4 days.

To facilitate the exchange of knowledge, Barcelona'gov has a scholarship system for those wishing to attend our courses.
