EJTN’s 2018 Annual Report, which recounts the achievements and developments of EJTN over the past year, is now available!

The report depicts another exceptionally productive year for the EJTN Network. A record number of 6,719 individual judges, prosecutors, trainers and trainees received training in the past year. In 2018, EJTN provided for a record of 34,289 individual training days to Europe’s judiciary. Furthermore, EJTN’s Exchange Programme provided for 2,928 judicial exchange and study visit places – representing an 8.5% increase in places compared to the previous year.

EJTN also pursued many other important efforts through 2018. At EJTN’s Directors’ Conference in Vienna, the EJTN Strategic Plan 2021-2027 was closely addressed. The plan is set to be formally adopted at EJTN’s upcoming General Assembly in June 2019 and will frame this Network’s future orientation, goals and relations with its actors as well as outline the Network’s planned activities.

The past year also saw many other key achievements and opened the door to new possibilities. On the basis of an Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA) with the Directorate-General Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR), the participation of the judiciary from the Western Balkans in EJTN’s training activities was opened. The important Rule of Law project was initiated, supporting resources for judicial training were created, webinars on timely topics were produced and administrative efficiencies were bolstered through continued improvements of various platforms. 

As with previous years, the remarkable results of 2018 would not have been possible without the unwavering commitment of EJTN’s Members, Observers and Partners as well as the dedicated EJTN Secretariat staff.

You are cordially invited to read about the Network and its actors, activities and achievements in the EJTN Annual Report 2018.
