From October 1, 2021, the Center for Legal Research and Analysis started with the implementation of the project ,,Supporting the quality and accountability in the Macedonian Justice sector”. The project will be implemented through three key components:
– Preparation and implementation of a mentorship program for judges from the basic, appellate and Supreme Court of Republic of North Macedonia, based on comparative experiences from Dutch legislation;
– Support to the Judicial Council in the implementation of the Methodology for determining the complexity of cases and the Methodology for evaluation of judges; and
– Analysis of domestic and judgments of the European Court of Human Rights through the prism of legal reasoning.
The project will contribute to strengthening and advancing the practical and theoretical knowledge and skills of the newly elected and promoted judges through direct communication and sharing of experiences with educator judges, and will also provide direct application in practice of Methodologies for the complexity of cases and evaluation of judges in Republic of North Macedonia.
The time frame for the implementation of the project is October 2021 – September 2023 and it is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
