On 25-27 October 2022, the Council of Europe European Commission for the efficiency of justice (CEPEJ) organised a three-days study visit of Georgian court managers from the Supreme Court of Georgia, Zugdidi and Rustavi Regional Courts and Tbilisi Court to the courts of Amsterdam, The Hague and East Brabant (The Netherlands).
The aim of the study visit was to discuss how to better manage the length of proceedings, and use data and statistics to guide decision-making, as well as on the management and organisation of courts and their budgets, and the handling of complaints. The digitalisation of justice and its challenges were also discussed in a more global way.
As a follow-up to the study visit, gained information in The Netherlands should be shared during the next Managers Forum to be held in the beginning of 2023 in Georgia.
The event was organised in the framework of the Project “Enhancing the accountability and the efficiency of the judicial system and the professionalism of lawyers” funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe in their Partnership for Good Governance II.
