Welcome to the website of the project
"STRENGTHENING DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS IN THE REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA"!
The project "Strengthening Democratic Institutions in the Republic of Moldova"
was implemented by the Centre
for European Constitutional Law-Themistocles and Dimitris Tsatsos Foundation
project's objective was the training of judges and officials from the Republic
of Moldova on priority issues (in view also of the process of implementation
of the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement with the European Union), the transfer
of know-how for the harmonization of Moldova's existing legislation with the
acquis communautaire and the articulation of concrete reform recommendations
for the strengthening of democratic institutions in Moldova.
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 experts from both countries), on-the-field transfer of
know-how from Greek experts to administrative officials (training of trainers)
on techniques of harmonization with Community Law, elaboration and publication
of a practical handbook to be distributed to the personnel of competent public
bodies of the Republic of Moldova, 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 human
rights protection, the organization and function of Justice, and social protection.
