Clingendael Academy hosted 5 senior representatives from the Tunisian Institut Diplomatique pour la Formation et les Etudes (IDFE). Clingendael has been working with IDFE since 2010 and this training marked a new focus on curriculum development and interactive skills based training.
At Clingendael, the group engaged with trainers on how to set up different curricula and how to make an interactive skills training for diplomats in the 21st Century. The group engaged Clingendael trainers on these issues and observed other in-house trainees during their skills workshops. They also accompanied our in-house groups to the International Court of Justice and International Criminal Court to show the added benefit of such visits for training purposes.
Sharing experiences on training, experiencing different learning styles and exploring different methodologies were some of the key takeaways for this Tunisian delegation, who have laid a solid foundation for their own training institute and for continued cooperation between IDFE and Clingendael.
