Participating at School of Public policy Mother Tereza for me was a great challenge. First of all, during the one year period I was up to date with all the latest and most important issues on local, regional and global level. Also, I meet great persons during the activities and last but not least I made a great progress and collect a great experience from all presented information. Now I’am sure that I’am closer to my next aim. All this, thanks to the CRPM team!

The School of Public Policy “Mother Teresa” is a cutting-edge school which offers a great opportunity for highly qualified participants to enter into polemics, to argument their views and to debate on important national, regional, European and global issues. It is an ideal place for breaking the personal limits, for developing the socio-cultural knowledge and for making new friendships with people from different backgrounds. In other words, the school is a unique educational and life experience which opens the mind, enriches the spirit and widens the horizons of the participants.

It has been a wonderful experience to be part of this school as it gave me great expert insight in the current events happening in our country and their influence on the public policy process. Also the discussions regarding the permanent issues that our public policy decision makers are trying to tackle for the last 20 years were pretty beneficial as their resolution is crucial for the future of Macedonia. Last but not least, the chance for networking and debating that was enabled through this school is one of the highlights of my time spent there especially bearing in mind that there are not many places in our country where people that come from different ideological backgrounds can exchange their opinions in civilized manner.

Participation in The School of Public Policy Mother Teresa is such a great experience and a privilege. Thanks to the national and international experts and their inspirational lectures we have been provided with exchange of ideas, opinions, experiences and it was certainly a place where practitioners, academics, experts as well as young leaders were gathered, all of them recognized in their field of competence. The organizing team of the School of Public Policy Mother Teresa, Center for Research and Policy Making, Council of Europe, all the lecturers and guest speakers of the School through their sessions and seminars inspired us all to think globally and act regionally.

School of Public Policy Mother Teresa creates one large family. I am honored to be part of the family. Through lectures and debates to receive information on the topics covered in the school and the friendship and cooperation of the students of the school that I fully realize the vision of the school – leadership in the promotion of democratic values.
