Application Procedure Open for Matra Rule of Law Training Programme “Administration of Justice”

11 April 2017

The NHC is now accepting applications for the Matra Rule of Law Training Programme “Administration of Justice“. The training, which will take place 7 – 16 June, 2017, is intended for judges with special interest in court management and responsibilities for the organisation of the administration of justice. In later years this training programme will be offered specifically to public prosecutors and to civil servants and policy makers with responsibilities for the organisation of the administration of justice. The deadline for submitting applications is Tuesday 25 April.

The Matra Rule of Law Training Programme is designed to strengthen institutional capacity in the fields of rule of law within government organisations in the Western Balkans, Georgia, Moldova, Turkey, and Ukraine. To this end seven training programmes are offered per year, each introducing the participants to best practices in a wide range of rule of law themes. Through interactive sessions combining theory, practical skills and study visits, policy advisors, members of the judiciary and other civil servants working in the government and justice sectors acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to drive reforms in their home countries. In addition, by taking part in the training programme, participants become part of a large transnational network of alumni, lecturers and relevant government departments in the Netherlands and in the target countries. This network offers a platform for learning, exchange and collaboration.

The Matra Rule of Law Training programme is designed and delivered by Leiden Law School, the Netherlands Helsinki Committee, and The Hague Academy for Local Governance. It is financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, initially for a period of two-years (2017- 2018).

Through interactive sessions combining theory, practical skills and study visits, civil servants and other professionals working in the government and justice sectors will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to manage and communicate about the administration of justice and to drive reforms in their home countries.
