EUKOJUST supports the entire justice reform system in Kosovo (video)

As for all other countries aiming for EU integration, same for Kosovo, the Rule of Law remains the key to the entire process. Therefore, Kosovo is entirely reforming the justice system and is aiming to enhance it to the European standard. The EUKOJUST project, for three years now, is supporting this journey.

“The main goal is to align the Kosovo judicial system with European, meaning EU standards. So this is what we want to achieve and of course we are not alone in this respect, as I said in the very beginning there are partners we are cooperating with. So, I think we are in a good path to support Kosovo in this respect, the Kosovo judiciary, but still there is a lot to do,” said Volkmar Theobald, EUKOJUST Team Leader.

The most significant impact or the main goals which were coordinated with  EUKOJUST Programme are related to the Rule of Law Strategy, which is a several-years Strategy, and then also to the re-organization and re-systematization or organogram of the Ministry of Justice. And in matters related to the concept documents such as civil codes or criminal codes and other special laws,” said Vigan Qorolli, Deputy Minister of Justice.

EUKOJUST’s activities focus on solving problems and are need oriented , so that the solutions serve the justice sector and the citizens, while implementing 4 specific objectives:

  • Capacity building and inter-institutional coordination in the justice sector;
  • Strengthening the independence, impartiality, accountability, professionalism, quality, efficiency and transparency of the judiciary;
  • Improving the consolidation and further alignment of the legal and institutional framework with European legislation, standards and practices and the implementation of laws; and
  • Improving access to justice, especially for women and disadvantaged or marginalized groups.

The key institutions that have benefited from this project are: the Ministry of Justice, the Judicial Council of Kosovo, the Prosecutorial Council of Kosovo, the Justice Academy, as well as the Legal Office of the Prime Minister of the country.
