Under the EU Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA), the British Council led Consortium is implementing 'European Union's Support to the Judicial Academy' project since March 2016. The project is supporting the enhancement of educational activities, functioning of new structures within new competences of the Judicial Academy, and establishment of the consistent judicial system of the Republic of Serbia.

Working together with its Serbian partners, the Project will contribute to improvement of the independence and efficiency of the judiciary, building it on the expertise and best practices of counterpart judicial training institutions in the EU countries. In particular, the Project will aim at ensuring easier access to the case law of the European Court for Human Rights for the relevant target groups, improvement and unification of the case law among Serbian courts as well as its harmonisation with the EU standards.

Key project beneficiaries are the Judicial Academy and the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Serbia.

The Judicial Academy is a relatively new institution in the Serbian judicial system. As one of the key stakeholders within the judicial reform in the Republic of Serbia, by improving its professionalism, management competencies, as well as its organisational capacities for quality assurance in delivery of trainings, at the end of the Project, the Academy should be enabled to fulfil its main purpose – become the hub for judicial learning trough provision of initial, continuous and specialized training for judges and prosecutors.

We are implementing this two-year project in partnership with FIIAPP (Spain), Alternative Consulting (Serbia) and AlterFact (Serbia).
