ENCJ Opinions on the development of the European Judicial Area

This position paper is based on the address of the ENCJ President at the Assises de la Justice conference in November 2013 in Brussels. The position paper collects the main points of previous ENCJ reports. 

 The joint response is a reaction to the consultation of stakeholders by the European Commission which is aimed at at helping the Commission in preparing a Communication on European judicial training, which will be published in September 2011. The response is a joint reaction of the Network of the Presidents of the Supreme Judicial Courts of the EU, the Association of the Councils of State and Supreme Administrative Jurisdictions of the EU and the European Network of Councils for the Judiciary.

The Opinion states the priorities that ENCJ thinks the EU institutions should focus on. ENCJ also proposes to be actively involved in the further development of the European Area of Justice, Freemdom and Security. The ENCJ expresses its hope that the Stockholm Programme and its implementation, will meet not only the expectation of participants in the administration of justice, especially the judiciaries of Europe who wish to make a real contribution to better justice in their home or of their fellow Member State, but also the expectations of all European citizens, who require an independent, effective, and speedy system of justice, to ensure justice of the highest quality throughout Europe.
