Ministry of Justice launches electronic encyclopaedia on International Law

Supported by EUPOL COPPS Mission, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) launched on Tuesday 14 November an electronic encyclopaedia to provide the public, officials, researchers and human rights specialists free access to an online database about legal information related to the state of Palestine. 

Nataliya Apostolova, Head of EUPOL COPPS Mission, said in her speech that other Palestinian institutions should follow suit to better serve the Palestinian public.

“We ensure that our support and assistance to our counterparts will maintain to serve the best interests of the Palestinian people in all possible manners and also to serve the Justice Sector in Palestine,” she said.

The MoJ teams have uploaded hundreds of documents on the E- encyclopaedia, which also includes the international organizations to which the State of Palestine recently joined, the international treaties and conventions acceded to by Palestine, in addition of speeches by President Mahmoud Abbas and other former presidents at the United Nations.

The E-encyclopaedia is available in English and Arabic, as of 14/12/2021.

The Rule of Law section works closely with all key justice institutions in Palestine in order to improve the legislative process, promote fair trial principles and strengthen the institutions through institutional development and capacity building.
