Study Trips

Since 1992 DRA has promoted the exchange of experts between Eastern and Western Europe and organized educational trainings. We are highly experienced in conducting educational activities such as trips to Berlin, Brandenburg and other German cities. The topic and program is individually designed to match the goals and needs of the participants. When designing the program we cooperate with high-level German political institutes, such as the German Bundestag as well as federal and state ministries. Furthermore, we supervise and coordinate the exchange relations between Berlin and Moscow in the context of our town twinning arrangement.

Our educational trips usually include the exchange and establishment of contact with representatives of executive and legislative according to the topic. Visiting governmental as well as non-governmental organizations provides the participants with insights into practice and methods. The duration of the trip is usually 6-7 days but might differ depending on the group. Each trip also includes a cultural program.

Our educational program aims at experts of the following areas:

  • Administration
  • Labor market policies
  • Interested teachers and officials
  • Schools and students
  • Social work
  • Migration, integration, education and family
  • Volunteering and honorary work
  • Civil society organizations
  • Entrepreneurs interested in exchanging experiences and German business partners
  • Culture and environment

We enable Russian participants to directly contact German experts, gather firsthand information and get an idea of how the German political and education system as well as the social institutions work.
