A training session on court communication was conducted on 19 February 2021 by a national communication expert and a consultant of the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ), former Presiding Judge at the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf (Germany). The training by videoconference was attended by more than 40 representatives of judicial authorities, including judges, court presidents, as well as representatives of the Superior Council of Magistrates and the Ministry of Justice.
The participants to the training had the opportunity to find out more about the CEPEJ Guide on communication with the media and the public for courts and prosecution authorities and to expand their knowledge in regard to the methods and means of communication, the importance of internal communication within the judiciary, and about crisis communication. The participants exchanged views on how to improve court communication with an investigative journalist from “Ziarul de Garda”. The results of this training will be used for the purpose of updating the training on judicial communication at the National Institute of Justice.
The activity is implemented in the framework of the European Union / Council of Europe Project “Support to further strengthening the efficiency and quality of the judicial system in the Republic of Moldova”, as part of the 2019-2021 “Partnership for Good Governance II” programme (PGGII), co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe.
