Pavel Shatev Academy for Judges and Public Prosecutors, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety
In cooperation with the Pavel Shatev Academy for Judges and Public Prosecutors in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, the REC is organising a workshop for judges and legal professionals on access to justice, to be held on April 17 and 18, 2018, in Skopje. The event is being organised in the framework of the project “Better Access to Justice in South Eastern Europe”, funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. The project provides targeted support to selected Aarhus Convention parties to further reduce gaps with respect to access to justice under the convention. The workshop will provide an opportunity for judges and legal professionals from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia to gain a better understanding of access to justice requirements under the Aarhus Convention, related EU directives and national legislation.
The workshop will offer:
- an interactive platform for the exchange of experience;
- an insight into how access to justice works in the EU and other countries; and
- an insight into major difficulties and gaps in the implementation of access to justice rights, and ways to remove or reduce barriers to access to justice.
The workshop will take place in Macedonian and English, with simultaneous translation.
Further information about the project can be found on the project website.
