A three-day study visit to the Judiciary of England and Wales was organised in London for a group of eight judges and prosecutors aiming to exchange good practices towards better interpretation and implementation of the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights (the Convention) and the European Court of Human Rights (the Court) case law in domestic decisions.

During the study visit participants had unique opportunity to have peer to peer exchange of relevant professional experience and good practices with judges from the Central London Criminal Court (The Old Bailey), the Chamber and the Upper Tribunal on Immigration and Asylum Chamber and the Westminster Magistrates’ Court. In addition, the participants were welcomed by the Judicial College, discussing the training methodology and curriculum on human rights issues and the Convention rights.

The study visit enabled participants to benefit from discussions with judges in England on latters’ practice and methods on harmonization of national jurisprudence with the Court’s case-law, in particular in relation to criminal and asylum cases.

This activity was organized within the Project “Increasing judicial capacity to safeguard human rights and combat ill-treatment and impunity”, as part of the “Horizontal Facility for Western Balkans and Turkey”.

As of 12 February 2019, the official name of the country changed to North Macedonia.
