Regulatory quality supports Rule of Law (Tajikistan)

The « Rule of Law in Central Asia » Initiative of the European Union aims at promoting reform and good governance in judicial systems in the five Central Asian countries. Along the lines agreed at the Third Conference of Ministers of Justice of European Union Member States and Central Asian countries in Brussels in December 2012, the main activities are capacity building of the public administrations, parliaments and judiciary. Since their independence, the states of Central Asia have initiated various reforms to strengthen the rule of law which are crucial for the effective protection of human rights, for socio-economic development, as well as for the further development of trade and investment links with Europe. Better Regulation can bring a significant contribution to strengthening democratic institutions and economic performance.
On July 2-3, 2013, your blogger was invited to contribute to a training workshop Legislative drafting techniques in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. At this workshop, two branches of new public governance were the focus of the exchanges between the national and foreign experts: better legislative drafting, for a clearer and more effective use of regulation by public authorities, and performance based budgeting, for a more transparent and efficient use of public finances. Participants were able to reflect on how the new legal and budget techniques can deliver on the Rule of Law objectives. All the presentations will be published online, but in the meantime, here are some rare resources: a presentation on legistics, and an update on recent trends in RIA in France (in Russian).
