An expert from France visited Moldova this week to discuss court management in his home country and the tools developed by the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ). The event was organised by the EU-Council of Europe Programmatic Cooperation Framework (EU/CoE PCF) for leaders and trainers from the Justice Academy of Azerbaijan as well as the National Institute of Justice of the Republic of Moldova interested to discuss training needs and ways to develop and introduce courses on efficient court management in their respective countries.

According to the EU/CoE PCF, the judicial training institutions from Azerbaijan and Moldova represented at the event are committed to implementing training courses on judicial management for judges and court staff by the end of 2016, as part of the efforts to improve the efficiency and quality of justice as a public service in these two countries.

The joint EU/CoE PCF aims to provide extensive and substantial expertise on strengthening the capacity of institutions in the six Eastern Partnership countries to implement domestic reforms and bring them closer to Council of Europe and European Union standards in the fields of human rights, democracy and the rule of law, and improve the lives of citizens. The EU’s contribution to the PCF is EUR 30 million.
