Visit to the German Judicial Academy in TrierVisit to the German Judicial Academy in Trier

From 23 to 25 February 2016, the IRZ organised a study visit to Germany on the subject of "Education and further training systems for court employees and police" for four representatives of the Kazakhstan academy of law enforcement agencies. The academy was founded in September 2015 as part of the modernisation of the legal system at the Public Prosecutor's Office in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Since then it has been responsible for the advanced training and further development of court employees and police forces.

As part of the study visit, the guests from Kazakhstan visited the Deutsche Hochschule der Polizei (German Police Academy) in Münster, the Deutsche Richterakademie (German Judicial Academy) in Trier and the state higher education institute for the Bundeskriminalamt (German Federal Criminal Office) in Mainz-Kastell. The focus of the visit was on German experiences of further training opportunities. Following an introduction to the German training system with studies and traineeships, the Kazakh delegation was informed about bachelor and master's degree courses.

They were also particularly interested in the organisation, financing and areas of responsibility of the educational establishments that were visited. The delegation was given the opportunity to visit the individual properties.

The IRZ will continue its cooperation with the academy of law enforcement agencies throughout the year.
