The Mission has a long-standing co-operation experience with the Parliament of Montenegro and it has been dedicated to enhancing the Parliament¡¦s effectiveness and functioning, in particular by strengthening the parliamentary services. The Parliamentary Institute serves as a specialised information centre within the Parliament, which provides information and makes records and library resources available. These records and library resources are collected, kept and processed in the Parliamentary Institute, and are necessary for timely and quality exercise of parliamentary office, work of the parliamentary service and work of Members of the Parliament groups. The Parliamentary Institute is composed by the three following units: 1. Research Centre, 2. Library and Documentation Centre and Archive, and 3. Education Centre. In order to support further enhancement of the key work of the Parliamentary Institute, the OSCE Mission to Montenegro will engage an International Expert to conduct an analysis of the two following units: 1. Research Centre and 2. Library and Documentation Centre and Archive.
