This is the reason why the project "Nordic Support for Progress of North Macedonia" organized a training for fifteen professional staff members of the Assembly of the Republic of North Macedonia. The training was conducted by Irena Bojadjievska Ph.D., Professor at the Faculty of Law at the American College and an experienced EU expert, and Petar Kamchev, who holds a MSc degree in Economics from the London School of Economics (LSE) with expertise in Finance and Financial Implications and the EU.
The purpose of the training was to present the EU institutions’ competencies and functions as well as the processes within the institutions regarding the EU integration process of North Macedonia. In addition, the professional staff members of the Assembly had the opportunity to get acquainted with the role and connection of these processes with the national parliaments. During the lectures, greatest emphasis was given to the legislative process, the role of the European Parliament, the European Commission, the Council of the European Union (European Council and the Council of Ministers), the European Court of Justice, as well as the role of the Assembly in the EU integration process.
This training is part of a series of trainings for the members of the Committee on European Affairs and the professional staff members of the Assembly of the Republic of North Macedonia to strengthen their capacities regarding the EU integration process which will take place until September.
