The ENCJ gathered from 7th to 9th June in the Cour de Cassation in Paris for its General Assembly. The central theme of resilient justice was discussed and the Paris declaration was adopted. In it the ENCJ calls upon the European Institutions and Member States to guarantee judicial independence in accordance with the Rule of Law, and, furthermore, calls upon Councils for the Judiciary and Judges at all times to be resilient in the face of the challenges which face them.

The ENCJ report on Independence, Accountability and Quality of the Judiciary was also adopted and contains the outcomes of the 2016/2017 survey among judges on their independence.
