Short specialized international cycles in public administration (CISAP - 1 or 4 weeks)

 
One-to four-week cycles on specific themes, intended for high-level civil servants from abroad, managers in public-sector companies and representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) who wish to improve their knowledge in specific areas. These courses, lasting from one to four weeks, are held in Paris. Most are taught in French, although some sessions each year are given in Spanish or English.

These courses, lasting from one to four weeks, are held in Paris. Most are taught in French, although some sessions each year are given in Spanish  or English.

While the French experience in public administration serves as the point of departure for discussion, the course work is in fact comparative, and resolutely turned toward Europe and the world beyond. CISAP programs encourage sharing of national experiences. The course includes lectures, seminars, and round-table discussions, as well as case studies, simulations and field trips.
