Twinning

This institution-building instrument helps partner countries acquire the necessary skills and experience to adopt, implement and enforce EU legislation.

Twinning seeks to help transfer, adopt and/or adapt to EU legislation, standards and practices and to modernise partner countries’ administrations through reorganisation, drafting of laws and regulations and through capacity-building. It is based upon close cooperation between a public administration institution in a Neighbourhood country and the equivalent institution in an EU Member State (MS) in a specific field related to the acquis communautaireor any other relevant field of cooperation.

Actions in brief

The instrument provides public sector expertise from EU Member States.  Each Twinning project also has at least one civil servant seconded from an EU MS administration for a minimum of 12 months, bringing much-needed practical expertise with EU laws and administration. In addition, there are carefully planned and timed missions by other civil servants from the EU Member State partner; training events; and awareness raising visits to drive the reform process towards the desired result.

EU Cooperation with Syria is currently suspended due to the political situation in the country; however, since in principle Syria is eligible for cooperation under the ENPI, activities may be taken up again once the situation improves.
