Representatives of judiciary, civil society, law specialists and media gathered Thursday to discuss the challenges and perspectives of unifying the court practice in Macedonia. The analysis is a comprehensive product of research of the Centre for Legal Research and Analysis in cooperation with the Macedonian judiciary institutions and Justice Ministry.

Our ambassador Charles Garrett shared the panel with Justice Minister Adnan Jashari and Lidija Stojkova-Zafirovska from the Centre for Legal Research and Analysis. Ambassador Garrett said:

If you work within the judicial system, this will be an opportunity to understand how you personally can help to strengthen the role of key principles such as consistency, coherence, legal certainty, predictability, transparency. But you don’t have to work in the judicial system to benefit from today’s event. Everyone in the country has an interest in a stronger judicial system, because it is central to building a strong democracy: one that promotes choice, voice and access to rights. The work you are doing today will touch all your compatriots.

The project is implemented by the Centre for Legal Research and Analysis in Macedonia. Throughout the project they enjoyed the cooperation with the Judicial College of London, to help bring comparative experience and practices of the United Kingdom and to share their knowledge and experience.
