Activity Synopsis (ID# 31292) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) The Working Group (WG) on the Strategy for Justice Sector Reform was created on 3 June 2011 by an Order of the Minister of Justice and programme’s assistance was sought for the purpose of drawing up the draft Strategy.

The programme organised the first 5 days session meeting of the Working Group outside the Moldovan capital, in order to facilitate an efficient work of the experts. Supplementary assistance has been offered through translation of the Strategy on Justice Sector reform of Bosnia and Herzegovina, used by the members of the Working Group as a model. On 6 July 2011 the MoJ presented the draft strategy during a round table with participation of all stakeholders, including international partners, and invited those interested to provide their opinions and recommendations for improving the Strategy before its adoption. 
Output/Results The draft Strategy for Justice Sector Reform 2011-2015 has been drawn up and published for the purpose of public consultations. The programme will provide an expert assessment of its concept, structure and concrete provisions with the final objective of setting up an independent, efficient and coordinated justice system accountable to Moldovan citizens and aligned with Council of Europe and EU standards and good practices related to justice administration and guaranteeing the rule of law. 
Conclusions/Follow Up In July-August 2011 the programme will assist the Ministry of Justice in organising expert meetings and public debates on the draft Strategy, in order to fine-tune it before submission to the Government. 
Participants The WG comprises a number of employees of the ministry, representatives of the academic and NGO circles
