Parliament Modernization


Accountability, transparency and good governance are at the core of democracy. By providing support to Parliament development, the EU seeks to advance those key issues and strengthen democratic procedures in Lebanon.

Indeed, Lebanon currently ranks 96 among 154 countries according to the latest democracy profile by World Audit, leaving room for improvements in democratic governance. Advancements in this area would enable the Lebanese Parliament to effectively perform its main legislative and oversight roles, as well as reforming the electoral system to meets international standards.

Under the SJP, the EU currently funds the Support to Parliamentary Development in Lebanon project, which is aimed at enhancing Parliament’s ability to carry out its functions and responsibilities efficiently.
