Strengthening the Turkish court management system - the CEPEJ “Checklist for promoting the quality of justice” and its “Handbook for conducting satisfaction surveys” are key points of reference [May 2013]

The CEPEJ Checklist for promoting the quality of justice and the CEPEJ Handbook for conducting satisfaction surveys have been used as central references at two workshops on External Relations and Quality Services held in Ankara, Turkey, in February and April 2013. The aim was to discuss the external relations needs of prosecution offices and courts, particularly towards law enforcement agencies, and the basic elements of quality services within a judicial organisation, with reference to good practices in European countries. The outputs of the workshops provided the basis for developing policy papers for the pilot courts and prosecution offices, which will be submitted to the Turkish Ministry of Justice and the High Council of Judges and Prosecutors for review and follow-up.
