The European Cyberjustice Network (ECN) allows the exchange of good practices and helps to define future initiatives by the Council of Europe to support its member States in the digital transformation of their judiciary in line with Human Rights standards. The network supports the activities of the CEPEJ and its working groups (CEPEJ-GT-CYBERJUST et al.). The Network was inaugured on 16 November 2021.

The activities of the Network are steered by the CEPEJ Working group on Cyberjustice and Artificial Intelligence (CEPEJ-GT-CYBERJUST).

The European Cyberjustice Network contributes to the content of the CEPEJ Resource Center on Cyberjustice and Artificial Intelligence which provides concrete resources on Cyberjustice and gives an overview of the development, implementation and use of artificial intelligence tools in the judicial environment in Europe and beyond.

 

 Role and Tasks : 

The ECN’s role is:

  • to exchange information on good practices as well as challenges encountered in member States concerning cyberjustice and artificial intelligence in the judicial environment. It should monitor and exchange information on pilot and ongoing projects in member States;
  • to consult on matters falling within the scope of the mandate of CEPEJ-GT-CYBERJUST to provide up-to-date background and statistical information on the situation in member States;
  • to initiate proposals for new tools, actions and co-operation projects and new actions based on the needs identified by member States and the CEPEJ working groups;
  • to disseminate information and tools developed by the CEPEJ-GT-CYBERJUST and, where appropriate, to organise training sessions for the competent authorities in member states;
  • to support local initiatives to test the new CEPEJ tools in practice and inform the CEPEJ-GT-CYBERJUST on their results;
  • to provide a platform for bilateral and multilateral co-operation for the development of e-justice applications.
