Building the capacity of the Romanian Parliament to be an active European actor II

Period of implementation: June 2011 – December 2011

This project is the continuation of the project “Strengthening the Romanian Parliament to be an active European Actor” (implemented between June-December 2011), which aims to make the parameter active and prominent Romanian actor in European debates and making decisions. The project had two components: a study on the role of the Romanian Parliament in European debates and organizing a conference to discuss the main points contained in the report.
One of the most important findings of the study was that the main impediment of Parliament in strengthening its capacity to be an active player in the European debate is the absence of a legal framework for European affairs coordination between Parliament and Government.
As such, by continuing this project, CRPE aims to cover this gap, mediating talks between Parliament and the Executive and offering viable solutions making normative act.
