The project has worked on public administration reform (PAR) in more than 30 partner countries to help them to establish professional public administrations, effective financial management and economic development.

Since 2016 a constructive tripartite collaboration between the Venice Commission, SIGMA and the Southern Mediterranean partners has been developed as part of the UniDem Med project.
