Supporting the High Judicial Council for a unified methodology for the collection of judicial data in Albania

CEPEJ experts are conducting a series of trainings on the new methodology for the collection of the judicial data as part of its support to the High Judicial Council (HJC).

In accordance with the Law No. 115/2016 on Governance Institutions of the Justice System, HJC adopted a Guide on the collection of data and completion of the charts on statistical data for the measuring and monitoring of the productivity and efficiency of courts, based on CEPEJ guidelines.   

This Guide provides for a framework and rules for harmonised data collection and reporting in all Albanian courts, in order to use judicial statistics as tools  for an efficient management and increased transparency, and accountability of court activities. 

Following the training of staff of the department of statistics in the HJC, CEPEJ experts will also train the staff at all court levels.  

The action “Strengthening the Quality and Efficiency of Justice in Albania” is part of the Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey 2019-2022” joint programme, co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe.

“Due to the health crisis of COVID-19, the CEPEJ continues its work by adapting its working methods to the requirements of health safety and telework".

The news on this page report on the activities carried out in these exceptional circumstances. The gradual return of the Secretariat to the premises of the Council of Europe began in mid-May in accordance with the instructions of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe.

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.

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. (Read more)
