Welcome to CESS
In our programmes we engage in training and coaching on good governance issues, parliamentary oversight, process management in parliaments and Security Sector Reform (SSR). We provide training (including training of trainers) and develop training material for practitioners in government agencies, parliament, media and civil society. We teach all over Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. Watch our 5-minute video or read our SSR brochure for more information.
