On the 13th – 17th of June 2012 the next study session of the School of Young Managers in Public Administration took place. The first time the event was held in Moldova, and it was concentrated on studying the results of reforms and decentralization in this country. Previously the sessions took place in Kiev, but taking into consideration the last tendencies of development of Ukraine the management of SYMPA has decided to change the place of study session.
The experience of Moldova in the issue of reforms is very interesting. The country went through a civil was in the 90s, the danger of collapse and serious crisis of identity. Until in Moldova there was one of the longest political crisis in the modern history of Europe.
