The National School of Government and Ecole National d’Administration renew their partnership

Governance and Human Rights

The French Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA) and the South African National School of Government (NSG) have been working together since 2009 and signed a 5-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in September 2016. This MoU came to an end in September 2021 and was extended for 12 months, until September 2022. ENA will be replaced by the new Institut National du Service Public (INSP) in January 2022 and the two institutions will explore ways to further their strategic partnership in the coming year.

 During these 5 years, the ENA-NSG cooperation has mainly consisted of institutional meetings, visits in France and South Africa, webinar, trainings and tailor-made courses on human resources management, public administration reform and digital transformation in the public sector among others, as well as sharing of expertise on a broad diversity of topics such as governance, decentralization or public management in times of crisis.

At the end of the February 2019 political dialogue forum, the French and South African foreign ministers committed to significantly increasing the number of senior officials trained in France. The French embassy supports the intensification of relations between ENA / INSP and the NSG.
