A study of good practices will facilitate the development of this type of assistance in the countries of the Southern Mediterranean region
The second EuroMed Justice seminar on “Good practices and models for implementing legal assistance” has taken place in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The objective was to develop the capabilities of the institutions involved in the countries which are part of the project, as well as those involved in the drafting of laws in line with international standards.
The EuroMed Justice IV project is funded by the European Union and managed by the FIIAPP, in collaboration with CILC, EIPA and JCI, and contributes to the development of Euro-Mediterranean judicial cooperation and democratic justice systems in the countries of the Southern Mediterranean region.
Among the participants of the seminar, who already attended a first meeting, were the Ministries of Justice, associations of lawyers and civil organisations of Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
The “Regional Study on good practices and models for implementing legal assistance”, the result of these seminars, has been written for the use and support of the institutions of these countries, based on the contributions they gave via questionnaires.
The next step will be to work within the framework of the “Quality Legal Assistance Services for Vulnerable Populations” destined for Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon.
