The European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice

Lisbon Network


During its first meeting held in Strasbourg on 16 and 17 December 2004, the Bureau of the European Network for the Exchange of Information between Persons and Entities Responsible for the Training of Judges and Public Prosecutors - Lisbon Network (Austria, Finland - Chair, France, Romania and Turkey), in view of taking further actions, prepared and adopted three questionnaires to be sent to the Members of the Network.

The analysis which has been subdivided into three sections following the topical order of questionnaires - has the aim to provide information as to the answers given to the questionnaire by the delegations.2 Some analyses and reflections will be added to facilitate further work by the Bureau, the members of the Network, and the Council of Europe at large.
