Representatives of the Foundation made an assessment of ways in which the Foundation might assist the judiciary and the justice system in Macedonia. They focussed on the improvement of administrative law; the development of the civil legal system; and alternative disputes resolution/mediation.
Slynn identified a pressing need for judicial training in ECHR law and advised on systems for judicial appointments and the way in which legal advice is effectively given to government.
A further visit to Skopje by representatives of the Foundation, Slynn looked at ways the Foundation could advise on the training, appraisal and promotion of judges. This was followed by a high-level judicial delegation from Macedonia visiting London for whom the Foundation organised an intensive two day-programme, with discussion sessions, visits to the RCJ, the Old Bailey and the Judicial College.
