Twinning

Twinning

Based on a mandate by the European Commission to implement Twinning projects on behalf of Austria, the LBI-GMR has been cooperating in Twinning partnerships with different public institutions in the enlargement and neighbourhood countries since 2002. The institute supports its partners in legal and practical reform processes and institution-building by sharing its specific human rights expertise and its manifold experience in consulting the public sector.

The contribution of the LBI-GMR to Twinning usually consists in the scientific analysis of legislation, jurisdiction and administrative practice, the elaboration of legal comparative studies and draft laws, holding of training courses and drafting of training manuals as well as the formulation of policy recommendations, in each case relating to human rights, constitutional and democratic standards.

Twinning – an instrument in EU enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy
