In setting up the European Commission for  the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) at the end of 2002, at the initiative of the European  ministers of Justice who met in London (2000), the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe wanted to establish an innovative body for improving the quality and efficiency of the European judicial systems and  strengthening the court users’ confidence in such systems.

A short movie presenting the CEPEJ has been realised by the Directorate of Communication of the Council of Europe.

The CEPEJ develops concrete measures and tools aimed at policy makers and judicial practitioners in order to:

  • Analyse the functioning of judicial systems and orientate public policies of justice
  • Have a better knowledge of judicial timeframes and optimize judicial time management
  • Promote the quality of the public service of justice
  • Facilitate the implementation of European standrards in the field of justice
  • Support member states in their reforms on court organisations

The CEPEJ also contributes with specific expertise to debates about the functioning of the justice system in order to provide a forum for discussion and proposals and bring the users closer to their justice system.
