Legal module

The Legal Module includes a large number of legal instruments ranging from international, through regional to national framework.

  • All relevant international and regional treaties, structured according to thematic topics and mostly available both in English and Russian, are supplemented with information on the status of their signature, ratification or accession by the CARIM-East countries.
  • The National Legal Framework consists of two main sections: legislation and bilateral agreements. Legislation includes relevant laws and by-laws divided into 12 thematic subsections (visas, border checks, entry, labour migration, rights and obligations, asylum, etc.). All legal acts are accompanied by information on dates of their adoption and entry into force, available text versions and their official sources as well as by abstracts. Apart from helping to understand in a nutshell the content of a given legal act, the abstracts contain references to relevant articles thus facilitating the navigation within a legal act.
  • Explanatory Notes provide a deeper understanding of different aspects of national legal frameworks of the CARIM-East countries.
