Inter-parliamentary Cooperation for Administrative Support

9 April 2014

On 28 March 2014, a roundtable discussion entitled ‘Administrative Support for EU Integrated Tasks in National Parliaments – Experiences of the Recently Acceded EU Member States’ took place in the National Assembly of Armenia. The purpose of the discussion was to present the main administrative solutions adopted by EU member states to provide necessary support for inter-parliamentary activities related to EU membership.
The roundtable discussion was intended for members of those National Assembly Standing Committees dealing with inter-parliamentary cooperation, for members of the National Assembly Delegations of the EU-Armenia Parliamentary Cooperation Committee, and for members of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly. First of all, Kaja Krawczyk, EU Advisory Group (EUAG) Advisor on EU-Armenia Parliamentary Cooperation, gave an overview of the administrative support to EU-related inter-parliamentary activities. Two external spokesmen then presented case studies on Latvia and Poland examples of newly integrated country strategies.
Support for inter-parliamentary activities should be considered as cooperation between the state units which deal with EU-related issues. This cooperation will be improved and reinforced through internal parliamentary regulations and lead to more effective work on the part of the corresponding administrative authorities.
The EUAG was created in April 2009 in order to support the implementation of political and economic reforms initiated by the government of the Republic of Armenia. The Group provides high-quality consultancy services concerning EU-Armenia Agreements on Human Rights, Public Administration and Free Trade.
