Training Series on EU Association in the Ukrainian Parliament completed

On 12–13 December, Constanze Aka success­fully imple­mented the 9th and final training of IEP’s training series on EU associ­ation and coordi­nation in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

The workshop gave a compre­hensive overview of the functions and proce­dures of Bilateral Bodies for the imple­men­tation of AA/DCFTA. Partic­i­pants engaged in a lively simulation of an EU Ukraine bilateral meeting on transport or sustainable devel­opment respectively.

In short presen­ta­tions the partic­i­pants recapit­u­lated most topics covered in the training series: starting from methods and instru­ments of legal harmon­i­sation till approx­i­mation to EU compe­tition, consumer protection, intel­lectual property or energy legislation.

Last but not least, the workshop was finalized with a festive certificate ceremony. The success of the workshop series would not have been possible without the active engagement of partic­i­pants and experts.

The training series is part of the larger IEP Capacity Building project “EU Associ­ation Trainings” in Ukraine and is kindly supported by the German Federal Foreign Office.
