Impact and lessons of the COVID-19 crisis as regards the efficiency of justice and the functioning of the judiciary
During the Covid19 pandemic, member States had to adapt to new circumstances. A compilation of measures was made by the CEPEJ at the beginning of the health crisis and is regularly updated. To guide States, the CEPEJ organised a meeting on 10 June 2020, in the framework of the Greek Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, on the impact and lessons of the COVID19 crisis as regards the efficiency of justice and the functioning of the judiciary, which led to the adoption of the "Declaration on lessons learnt and challenges faced by the judiciary during and after the COVID19 pandemic" (more information)
Thematic file and study session: Artificial intelligence and data analysis: Defining clear processing purposes compatible with fundamental rights
The processing of judicial data must meet clear objectives as accepted by the scientific community. se procedures must be carried out in compliance with the fundamental rights guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights and the Convention for the Protection of Personal Data. With this in mind, the CEPEJ is currently examining the implications of the use of artificial intelligence for the justice sector, from the point of view of both the efficiency of justice and its quality, and is preparing guidelines for the Member States. CEPEJ's current work on this subject and the expected deliverables (including an Ethical Charter on the treatment of jurisprudence by what are known as artificial intelligence systems) will be presented during the next CEPEJ plenary meeting, on 27-29 June 2018.
