The CEPEJ organised between 19 and 28 November 2019 data collection support visits for the beneficiaries of the project "Dashboard for the Western Balkans: towards a better evaluation of the results of judicial reform efforts in the Western Balkans". These visits took place in Pristina (Kosovo*), Skopje (North Macedonia), Podgorica (Montenegro), Belgrade (Serbia) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and were aimed to improve data collection and quality by presenting and explaining the questionnaire and explanatory note specifically created for this activity to all those involved in this data collection. A member of the GRECO was also be present for some of these visits.
This activity was part of the "Dashboard Western Balkans" Action, which is part of the second phase of the "Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey" programme, funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe.
