EUPOL COPPS organizes key conference for the Palestinian Judicial Institution

On 17 May 2017, EUPOL COPPS and Palestinian Judicial Institute organized a one-day conference in Ramallah to further enhance the capabilities of the judiciary and prosecution. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>During the event, which was attended by over 120 guests, two important documents were launched: The Human Rights Training Manual for Judges and Prosecutors and the Handbook of Judicial Training Methodology in Europe, produced by the European Judicial Training Network and translated by EUPOL COPPS.</p>
<p>Acting Head of Mission Mike Albers said these guiding tools will soon be handed over to all the judges and prosecutors facilitating their daily work. “The two documents are part of EUPOL COPPS’s continuous strategic support to strengthen the operational capacity and efficiency of the Palestinian criminal justice institutions,” Mr. Albers told the attendees.</p>
<p>The large audience of the conference represented Palestinian justice institutions, donor countries and justice partners in addition to senior government officials. &nbsp;</p>
<p>The conference also focused on how to better develop the cooperation between Justice Sector institutions and donor countries in regard to the area of professional capacity building.</p>
<p>The PJI was established in 2014 and since then the Mission advisers have been heavily involved in supporting this institution, the main body in charge of training judges and prosecutors, through organizing&nbsp; trainings, workshops and study visits​
