Distillation of ENCJ Principles, Standards and Guidelines

In 2012 the ENCJ decided to set up a project team which would prepare a concise document distilling the principles established by the ENCJ, and its standards, guidelines and recommendations.The objective was to distil the wisdom of all previous ENCJ project teams and to create an approachable document that encapsulates the results of most of the pre-existing ENCJ reports and papers.

In 2016 and 2017 the report was updated to include the work done between 2012 and 2017. 

The final report  provides an accessible summary that assist EnCJ Members and Councils for the Judiciary and equivalent bodies in candidate and potential candidate Member States to identify good practices in relation to the management of a modern European justice system.

The report will also be of assistance to any requests for cooperation ENCJ may receive.
