Leadership Development

Support, inspire and bring together policymakers.

Our democracy is shaped by policymakers. By bringing them together in the name of democracy, we are building bridges — and that's exactly what is required if we want to strongly entrench our democratic values in Europe.

In Belgium, the King Baudouin Foundation seeks to support and bring together newcomers on the political scene through leadership courses. In doing so, we want to help them navigate their complex political and social context in unison. At the European level too, we put policymakers from different countries and different political tribes in touch with one another. We encourage them to enter into dialogue and start building mutual trust. The Foundation supports the Open European Dialogue (OED), for example: a network consisting of more than 200 members sitting in national parliaments.

Leadership development in brief

  • We encourage dialogue, build bridges and enable trust to grow between policymakers.
  • We offer leadership courses for political newcomers in Belgium.
