Bosnia: Strengthening the Integrity of the Judiciary

In support of the Justice Project in Bosnia and Herzegovina, NCSC delivered training on judicial ethics and discipline in Bosnia to strengthen judicial integrity. In March 2019, NCSC delivered a two-day training on judicial ethics to Bosnian judges and prosecutors. The training featured the Judicial Ethics Handbook, developed in association with the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council (HJPC).  In May, NCSC delivered a two-day workshop on judicial discipline. The workshop focused on planning and delivering a disciplinary system orientation program for HJPC disciplinary panel members. Participants included staff from Office of Disciplinary Counsel and HJPC.  The training featured the Judicial Discipline Benchbook, also developed in association with HJPC. 

The Justice Project in Bosnia and Herzegovina is a five-year rule of law initiative funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to strengthen the performance and the integrity of Bosnia’s justice system.  NCSC is a subcontractor to Millennium DPI Partners (MDPI).
