Working with SIGMA


Improving the public governance systems of SIGMA partners, especially strengthening the rule of law, is essential to stabilisation and integration into the rules-based global economy. SIGMA provides methodologies and tools to partner administrations in transition to help them create a stable democracy and access the benefits of a free market economy. This enables partners either to fulfill key requirements for EU membership or to create a closer relationship with the EU.
