Uzbekistan, Tashkent, Aug. 2 / Trend D. Azizov /
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Uzbek Supreme Court launched the joint project "Reform of Civil Legal Procedure: effective judicial administration," aimed at strengthening the civil courts, UNDP said on Thursday.
The project aims to introduce in Uzbekistan global best practices in court administration and court decisions.
According to UNDP, the sphere of civil justice requires the more attention as more and more people face problems of protection of their rights in civil proceedings - for the first nine months of 2011 the courts received more than 1.5 million calls, of which 60 percent are executed. In addition, the country's economic growth increases the demand for such government services.
The project will be implemented with the participation of the Research Center at the Supreme Court, the Department for the execution of court decisions, logistical and financial support of the courts and other organizations.
The project "Reform of Civil Legal Procedure" will be implemented before the end of 2014. It consists of several interrelated components designed to strengthen the civil courts through the introduction of global best practices in court administration, court decisions, as well as the establishment of cooperation between the civil court, the judicial department and the society.
The pilot approach is the starting point for the implementation of a full-scale reform of the civil proceedings.
