Study visits

We help our partners to create a well-tailored program for international study visits in Slovakia. We can organize short-term study visits (5-10 days), as well as longer internships (3 weeks - 2 months) in cooperation with our partners and clients. As we have a network of collaborators not only from the civic sector, but also from local governments, national government institutions, universities, and private companies, we can provide a good-quality program responding to the needs of the visitors or interns.

We are able to organize study visits in the following topics:

  • Local government, civic participation, good governance on the local level;
  • The democratic transformation of Slovakia since 1989;
  • The rights of minorities and social inclusion;
  • The development of civil society, its structures, cross-sector cooperation, advocacy, and fundraising.


  • In the 2015-2018 time period we organized several short-term study visits in topics related to civic participation and local governments to mixed groups of local government officials and NGOs from Ukraine;
  • Since 2015 we have been organizing study tours for local NGOs from Albania on topics related to cross-sector cooperation;
  • In 2018 we organized a series of month-long internships for leaders of NGOs and local government representatives from Ukraine. These internships took place in Banská Bystrica, Kochanovce (Humenné), Bardejov, and Bratislava.
