Public Administration Academy of the Republic of Armenia (PAARA)


PAARA was established with the support of the European Union TACIS Program. Full-time study, part-time, and short time forms of education are in place at the Academy.


The Academy has implemented several projects with the support of international organizations and cooperated with:


The Network of Schools and Institutes of Public Administration in Central and Eastern Europe “NISPAcee” (Bratislava, Slovakia), Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Service at the President of Russian Federation, Ukrainian Academy of Public Administration at the President of the Ukraine, Academy of Administration at the President of Belarus Republic, Academy of Municipal Administration of the Ukraine, Eurasia Foundation, EU TACIS Program, Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE), United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Department for International Development (DFID), UK; Open Society Institute (OSI), EU Tempus Program.


The Academy is on its way of integrating into the European Higher Education Area, and the European standards of education quality are a landmark for the Academy. Thus, the availability of EMI courses is an essential quality indicator in the context of PAARA’s internationalization strategy (the Academy offers the following EMI courses: Principles of Economics; International Economic Relations; Political Globalization; Theory of Bureaucracy).  In this regard, Professional Education Quality Assurance Department and relevant committees have been set up at the Academy to ensure the transparency of education quality assessment and accreditation of the study programmes, as well as the publicity of results for the Academy’s internal and external stakeholders, and the proactive participation of students and employers in the quality assessment process.


PAARA is an institutional member of NISPAcee, and a member of ENTO and IASIA.
