Two intensive training days on access to justice for vulnerable groups were organized by EUKOJUST Access to Justice Expert, Alina Matache, which involved around 35 judges, prosecutors, and professional associates in criminal and civil matters.
The delivered training curriculum has been designed to provide guidance for justice professionals on how to improve access to justice for Roma, Ashkali, and Egyptians, people with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people and, as well to provide a tool for national training institutions responsible for the training of judges, prosecutors, and lawyers in implementing the initial and in-service curriculum. This guidance is based on existing international, regional, and national standards.
The training was organized in close cooperation with the Kosovo Justice Academy to ensure consistency with the training modules and include two judges’ trainers.
Experts involved in drafting and delivering the training were Edona Ahmetaj, Ina Xhepa, Fjolla Hoxha, and Marije Vuksani.
