Judicial Management Training in Paris
European Union funded project LEICA organised and sponsored the participation of 5 judges (one from each of the Central Asian countries) in a judicial management course which took place at the Ecole Nationale de la Magistrature (ENM) in Paris from 12 to 16 December 2022. This training brought together young magistrates from several countries with a judicial or prosecutorial profile and a managerial potential or current function. The aim was to train them in management techniques of a court of justice. This training judiciously alternated theoretical sessions with personal experiences and questions and exchanges between the participants. An important part of the training was devoted to ethical aspects and respect for the values that underpin the rule of law and strict respect for the separation of powers between the executive, legislative and judicial branches. The French model was objectively presented with its strengths and weaknesses. A visit to the new Paris court allowed participants to visualize a modern organization grouping hundreds of courts in the same building.
The judges from Central Asia also exchanged experiences with participants from other countries from the EU and beyond, including Abu Dhabi, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Niger, Slovenia and Philippines.
The Project LEICA is managed by the European Commission, through a consortium made of French CIVIPOL and Slovak ISEMI, supported by Interpol.
