Armenian Academy of Diplomacy

This project, commissioned by the OSCE Office in Yerevan and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia assessed the need for an Armenian diplomatic training facility – the Diplomatic Academy of Armenia (DAA). The creation of a DAA is seen as a crucial step in enhancing the potential for effective training of diplomatic personnel of Armenia. The report identifies the target groups of trainees and their respective training needs and, based on this, several training schemes are suggested. In addition, the report presents various options for the overall management of the DAA. The report will be published as part of the OSCE Office in Armenia publication series in both English and Armenian.
