State policy education event; application for recognition.

Sponsors of events in the field of politics and society can apply for recognition as a state-political educational event.


The Bavarian State Center for Political Education shall decide on recognition as a state political educational event within the meaning of the release from duty provision of the leave ordinance upon application by the sponsor of the event.

Recognition of the event does not constitute an entitlement to time off from work. This does not affect the duty of the supervisor to check whether there are official reasons for not granting the leave of absence.


The following standards are applied:

  • According to the program design, the event must pursue the goal of making the civil servants, in their capacity as citizens, understand the state-political realities of their environment and the values of a free democratic state order, so that their ability to act in accordance with this understanding is strengthened. In the case of study trips abroad, recognition is only possible if the overall program can be predominantly attributed the character of a state-political educational event. The provision of general impressions about the political system of the country visited is not sufficient.
  • The event must have a seminar-like character. This requirement is met if at least five hours a day are filled with lectures, discussions or working groups, attendance at which is obligatory for the participants. Visits to companies, authorities, associations, etc. can only be taken into account if they directly serve the purpose of the event and are connected with one of the above-mentioned event forms.
