On 14 March the ENCJ organised a worshop with representatives of the European Commission, Council of Europe, CCJE, Worldbank, CCBE and the network of Supreme Court Presidents of the EU.
The aim of the workshop was to discuss the ENCJ Independence and Accountability project, the methododology developed and the outcomes in general. Each of the organsiations that attended brought their own expertise to the table.
The issues discussed included the internal independence of judges and the relation with evaluation of judges, inspection services and how to ensure that judges are free to decide their cases without fear for the consequences of their decision. The outcomes of the workshop will feed the work of the ENCJ Project on Independence and Accountability.
