On 4 April 2022, the OSCE Academy held the first alumni chapter meeting of 2022 in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan. The event brought together alumni residing in Kazakhstan for a meeting with the Academy staff members and a special guest Kamila Kovyazina, a Sociology Researcher with 10-year experience of working for a number of research institutes in Kazakhstan. During the meeting, graduates from different years, as well as in different academic and professional careers had a chance to learn more about each other and reminisce about the good old days at the Academy. Alumni also shared their professional experiences after graduation from the OSCE Academy: some of the alumni shared that they are in the process of obtaining a PhD, while others continue their careers in the public sector as a result of participating in Junior Public Officers programme and a certain number of alumni develop in international organizations and NGOs.
The OSCE Academy expresses its gratitude to the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for the financial support provided to the Academy via its Cooperation with the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs.
