About the project

The main objective is to assist Moldovan authorities to improve the functioning of the justice system through strengthened efficiency and quality of courts, and a better system of enforcement of court decisions.

To this end, it will support the implementation of a system for monitoring the progress of judicial reforms and to allow the adoption of justice sector policies based on objective information about the workload and performance of courts. Other objectives are improving the collection, reporting and analysis of data on the efficiency and quality of the courts and of the enforcement system, and consolidating the mechanisms for judicial transparency and accountability.

The project is co-funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe in the framework of the Partnership for Good Governance Programme - phase II (2019-2022)

 Context of the project

In April 2014, the European Union and the Council of Europe agreed that targeted co-operation activities with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus – the EU’s Eastern Partnership countries – would be implemented under the Partnership for Good Governance programme. The phase I of the programme (PGGI) started in 2015 and was completed in 2018; the second phase of the programme (PGGII) was launched in 2019 and will run until 2022.

These co-operation activities aim to strengthen the capacity of the Eastern Partnership countries, which are member States of the Council of Europe, with the exception of Belarus, to implement domestic reforms to bring them closer to European standards in the fields of human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
