Objective(s) Aim of this mission was to assess the results of implementation of the new court management system in the five pilot courts targeted by the project “Support to the Court Management System in Turkey” 2007-2009. The pilot courthouses visited were: Aydın, Manavgat, Mardin, Konya and Rize.

The results of this evaluation mission and recommendations prepared by the team of experts was envisaged to feed into development of a new implementation plan and road map for introduction of a new court management system in the new 20 pilot courts selected for the “Strengthening the Court Management System in Turkey Phase II” project. It was envisaged that experts would observe the current situation in the five pilot courts. They would assess the changes that took place in these courts; observe in what manner and how these changes improved the efficiency and effectiveness of the judicial work; and draw recommendations for further implementation of the new management system in twenty new pilots.
