Welcome to the website of the project
The project "Promoting Better Regulation in the Republic of Armenia" was implemented by the Centre for European Constitutional Law-Themistocles and Dimitris Tsatsos Foundation, in collaboration with the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia. The project's objective was to transfer know-how to permanent experts of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia, involved in the law-making process, in the aim to improve the quality of produced legislation, to accelerate the approximation with the acquis communautaire and to enhance the enforcement of legislation. Besides, it was among its objectives to respond to the need of the recipient country for exchange of views and experiences with experts from European countries, and to establish a bridge of communication between the participants and institutions involved.
To that end, various activities were implemented in the framework of the project, in particular: training activities (organization of a series of workshops with the participation of legal experts from both countries), a visit to the Hellenic Parliament, on-the-field assistance to the law-drafting procedure in the Republic of Armenia through missions of two experts and drafting of recommendations, elaboration and publication of a practical handbook to be distributed to the personnel of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia, and the construction of the present website. In the course of the training activities, the participants were given the opportunity to discuss thoroughly issues pertaining to the organization and functioning of the National Assemblies in Greece and Armenia, the law-making process in the two countries, techniques to harmonise national to European legislation and to achieve better quality of produced regulations, as well as various Constitutional Law issues.
All project activities were financed by the International Development Cooperation Department of the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Hellenic Aid).
The duration of the project was initially 10 months, but it was subsequently extended to 13 months. Most activities were held in Athens and the final workshop was held in Yerevan, Armenia. Greek, Russian and English have been used as working languages.
