The Georgian Institute for Strategic Studies (GISS), with funding from Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is implementing its flagship project Tbilisi Transformational Leadership Forum (TTLF) 2018.

Young professionals aged 24-35 from Ukraine, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Armenia, Sweden, Estonia, Lithuania, and Poland - are eligible for the program.

The project, which features two stages, will take place on November 25-30 in Tbilisi, Georgia and February 2019, Stockholm, Sweden.

The first stage of the forum will be hosted by GISS in Tbilisi, while the second stage will be a study trip to Stockholm, Sweden.

Participants will have a chance to get first-hand exposure to the best practices associated with Sweden.

The program provides a unique forum for emerging leaders to connect, exchange experiences, and obtain practical training to advance their knowledge and skill set.

The participants will have an opportunity to improve their understanding of political and economic transformations, deepen their knowledge and obtain skills about political, security, economic, and social dynamics.

The Georgian Institute for Strategic Studies (GISS) is a non-profit think-tank established in 2012. The GISSís mission is to serve as a resource for understanding political, security and foreign policy choices before Georgia and the wider region.

The primary goal of GISS is to invest in youth leadership through knowledge-sharing, skill-development training and hands-on activities, conduct study visits and exchanges for sharing Euro-Atlantic values and principles, contributing to the policy debate in Georgia and elsewhere through its analyses, recommendations, and commentaries.

Cooperation between Georgia and the Kingdom of Sweden is developing dynamically both in bilateral and multilateral formats. Various educational and cultural projects have been carried out within the frames of cooperation.
