Diplomacy & Foreign Affairs

The Education & Training Programme offers training courses for foreign diplomats or professionals in diplomatic practices, negotiation, mediation and communication. The courses in diplomatic practices answer specific needs of the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to support specific regions or countries and strengthen bilateral and multilateral relations.

Public administration

Through partnerships with African national schools of public administration (écoles nationales d’administration – ENA), the Egmont Institute actively supports the training of future civil servants. The institute has supported the ENA of the Democratic Republic of Congo since 2015, and new collaborations in sub-Saharan Africa are currently being developed, notably with ENA Mali.


Egmont is a prominent partner in several high-level courses, convening senior practitioners, to discuss security in all its aspects. These strategic-level study programmes provide Egmont’s researchers with a prime opportunity to engage directly in debate with key EU and Member States’ officials.
