Capacity building workshop focused on the legislative process at the Federal Member State level
On 30 March 2021, the Max Planck Foundation organised the third and final workshop for members of the Galmudug State Assembly addressing the topic: “Legislative Process at the Federal Member State Level.”
The EU-funded project Legal Capacity Building and Technical Support for the Somali Federal Parliament envisaged three workshops on Somali constitutional law from a comparative perspective for selected members of the Legislative Assemblies of the Somali Federal Member States. Each event included a presentation on the topic from a comparative perspective, a practical working group assignment, and a plenary discussion. With the third workshop organised for the Galmudug State Assembly members, this training programme has concluded in Galmudug.
The programme for the Galmudug State Assembly began in June 2019 and has addressed topics including the Somali Provisional Constitution and the Constitutional Review Process; the Role of the Legislature in Law Making; and Legislative Processes on the Federal Member State Level.
The workshop on the legislative process on the Federal Member State level and overall capacity building for members of the Galmudug State Assembly were well received. The participants and the political leadership of the Assembly requested future collaboration and support from the Foundation.
