Activity Synopsis (ID# 31301) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) The project, in co-operation with the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Moldova and the Moldovan Union of Jurists, organised this event in order to contribute to the process of the justice sector reform in Moldova. 
Output/Results The event gathered representatives of all juridical professions, international legal experts, law academics, representatives of the legislative and executive power, civil society etc. with the purpose to present and discuss the degree of involvement of the Moldovan civil society in the process of development of the new Strategy of Justice Sector Reform 2011 – 2016 and its consequent implementation.

In his opening speech the Minister of Justice, Mr. Oleg Efrim, expressed his gratitude and highly appreciated the broad involvement of the civil society in drawing up the Strategy noting that the civil society’s contribution increased the quality of this document. Mr. Ulvi Akhundlu, the Head of the Council of Europe Office in Chisinau stressed the importance of the civil society’s watchdog role in the oversight and monitoring the activity of the judicial system in order to serve as a constructive counterbalance for the Government and to further work in tandem with the Government in order to reach the common aims. 
Conclusions/Follow Up The works of the conference were focused on presentation and discussion of the most important aspects of a justice sector reform as such and the particular features of the reform in the Moldovan justice sector and how the civil society should play its role in this process. The international experts who were present at the conference shared the experience of their own countries on reformation of the justice sector. The participants welcomed the openness of the Moldovan Government in its collaboration with the civil society acknowledging the importance of the latter’s input in the reform process and agreed that a further consolidation of this collaboration is necessary.
