The CEPEJ has just published its 8th report "European judicial systems - CEPEJ Evaluation Report – 2020 Evaluation cycle (2018 data)". This biennial report highlights some trends concerning judicial systems at European level and beyond.
It contains quantified, commented and analysed data on the functioning of the judicial systems of 45 European States and 3 observer States (Morocco, Israel and Kazakhstan), making it possible to measure the efficiency and quality for each of them.
For the first time, the CEPEJ Evaluation Report contains country profiles which also allow the reader to situate his or her country in relation to other European countries. The data retained for each "country profile" concern, in general, human and financial resources, salaries of judges and prosecutors, qualitative information on their recruitment and promotion, the use of Information Technologies in the judicial systems, as well as the efficiency indicators developed by the CEPEJ (clearance rate and disposition time) and data on the workload of prosecutors and the existence of mediation procedures.
The dynamic public database CEPEJ-STAT completes this report by presenting all the quantitative and qualitative data collected by the CEPEJ since 2010 and by making available various dashboards which allow in particular comparative approaches between several countries.
The presentation note of the report summarises the main trends observed for the 2020 evaluation cycle, based on 2018 data.
The exhaustive answers by country to the CEPEJ questionnaire on which basis the report was drafted are available in the special file.
