Enhancing Legislative Drafting in Libya

In the absence of a permanent constitution and constitutional framework, the drafting of laws by existing institutions during the transitional phases leading towards a stable constitutional, legal and political framework must comply with certain standards and processes. Legislative drafting processes and best practices have the potential to enhance the legitimacy and coherency of laws, thereby facilitating their implementation and enforcement.

The project ‘Enhancing Legislative Drafting Skills (Libya)’ is the result of a cooperation between the Foundation and the European Union Integrated Border Management Assistance Mission in Libya (EUBAM Libya) with the Libyan Ministry of Justice and the Supreme Judicial Council of Libya. Through its strategic partnership with EUBAM, the Foundation will deliver a series of intensive workshops aimed at strengthening the institutional capacities of legal drafters of the Law Department.

Project activities will focus on the relevance and impact of rule of law principles for the legislative drafting process and will also emphasise the utility of legislative drafting for enhancing the rule of law in Libya. In addition to this, legal drafters will be introduced to concepts in constitutional law and international law, to enhance coherence and compliance of domestic laws with both constitutional and international legal frameworks applicable to Libya.
