Institutional building instruments 

Twinning (in Ukraine from 2005) – institutional building tool, aimed to help beneficiary countries in the development of modern and efficient administrations and organizations at central, regional and local level, with the structures, human resources and management skills needed to implement the acquis communautaire to the same standards as Member States. Twinning provides the framework for administrations in the beneficiary countries to work with their counterparts in Member States. Together they develop and implement a project that targets the transposition, enforcement and implementation of a specific part of the acquis communautaire.

TAIEX (in Ukraine from 2006) – an external assistance instrument provided by the European Commission to exchange information with the aim of institutional building needed for approximation of national legislation to acquis communautaire
