The new Code of Administrative Procedures and Procedures of the RK (APPK) came into force in Kazakhstan on 1 July 2021. Against this backdrop, IRZ has been providing advice on administrative and a Code of Administrative Procedure since late 2020.

As part of these consultations, a training course on “Administrative Law: Theory and Practice of Teaching” took place in Astana on 12-13 October 2022 in cooperation with KAZGUU University, Centre for Administrative Law and German Law. The target group were university lecturers who lecture on administrative law.

LMR Dr Christian Reitemeier, Ministry of Justice of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and Dr Christian Schaich, Administrative Director, Centre for Eastern European and International Studies, opened the series of presentations by outlining the courses in law at universities in Germany, and then conducted exercises on practical case solutions.

The following topics were covered in detail:

  • Introduction to the German techniques and procedures for solving cases
  • Principles of administrative procedure and their application
  • Discussion and resolution of a case from general administrative law based on German law and with reference to the APPK RK
  • Individual instruments of public administration (legal and administrative acts) and their application

The feedback on the training sessions was very positive. As the event was held face-to-face, participants were able to exchange their experiences directly with the German experts and explore them further in personal discussions.

The consultations on administrative law will be continued in 2023.
