Over the last 15 years, the parliaments of the Western Balkans have received extensive technical advice and capacity building support, from various institutions, organizations, multi-lateral projects and bilateral donors. The advice and support were very instrumental in strengthening the institution of parliament as the countries continue on their path towards European integration.

This document provides an overview of parliamentary capacity building in EU Candidate Countries and potential candidates over the last three to four years.

Considering the variety of initiatives and projects, and the different institutional context in each of the countries, this document has been structured around three main chapters: (1) profile of the national parliaments in terms of European integration and regional cooperation; (2) overview of single-beneficiary parliamentary capacity building projects, which means the projects through which one parliament receives assistance; (3) overview of regional parliamentary capacity building projects, which means the projects through which the parliaments of the region jointly benefit from a common program.
