It outlines the concept and design of the programme, and introduces a four-part analysis of the chair’s role which provided the intellectual framework for the series. It examines in detail the structure of the courses and the practical exercises which formed the core of the training. A con- cluding section draws together the lessons learned. The article would be helpful specifi cally to those preparing offi cials for the Presidency of the EU, but also for multilateral negotiations more gener- ally, as well as to those interested in the theory and practice of chairing.
