Recently the European Union Police and Rule of Law Mission (EUPOL COPPS) conducted a workshop for members of the Palestinian Harmonization Committee revolving around the methodology for implementing international treaties into national legislation. The workshop also touched upon the division of roles and responsibilities between the different Palestinian institutions before, during and after the implementation.
The training was conducted by the Mission’s Legislative Drafting Expert Anne-Marie Baldovin, who also reflected on the Belgium experience in harmonizing legislation.
EUPOL COPPS is the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support. The aim of the Mission is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements and to advise Palestinian counterparts on criminal justice and rule of law related aspects under Palestinian ownership.
