Promoting judicial reform in Ukraine is the basic direction of the Institute’s activity, as an independent and fair judicial system is the key to the development of any democratic state and ensures one of the main human rights – the right to a court.
The Institute carries out its activities aimed at studying judicial reforms in the following aspects:
disciplinary liability of judges;
application by the courts of Ukraine of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and the practice of the ECtHR;
the problem of forming a judicial corps (qualification assessment, selection of judges, etc.);
problems of the phenomenon of trust in the court;
use of the tool PRC(public reporting cards) to study attitudes towards the judiciary;
monitoring of court proceedings;
other aspects of judicial reform.
Over the years, the Institute has conducted many studies on this topic, which can be found in the section Publications and analytical materials.
