EuroMed Justice I Project

MEDA Programme of the European Commission (EC) - EuropeAid Co-operation Office

In December 2004 a contract was signed with the EuropeAid Cooperation Office of the European Commission (EC) according to which the European Centre for the Regions (ECR), the Barcelona's Antenna of the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA), is the Programme Management Unit of the "EuroMed Justice Programme".

The ECR was created in 1996. Its objectives are to promote regional cooperation within the EU and to ensure coherence in the implementation of Community policies at sub-national level; they are also to develop training programmes launched by the European Commission in the framework of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership.

Therefore, ECR objectives have an academic and practical component as a specialised and multi-skilled Centre and a regional and local dimension with its training activities addressed to:

  • Regional and local public Administrations of the EU Member States;
  • East European Countries, with special emphasis on areas of priority interest for the EU;
  • The Euro-Mediterranean area; pursuant to the spirit of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership and following a request of the Community Institutions and other bodies, to carry out some specific programmes for the Mediterranean Partners (MEDA countries).

The EuroMed Justice Programme is entirely funded by the EC MEDA Programme and falls under Chapter 1 of the Barcelona Declaration: the Political and Security chapter. Its aim is to set up an inter-professional community of Judges, Magistrates, Public Prosecutors, Lawyers and Court Registrars at the service of an open and modern justice reinforcing the rule of law and the effective pursuing of human rights.

This training programme will last 3 years, between January 2005 and December 2007.

All the MEDA countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey) will participate in the seminars with a delegation comprised of 2 legal professionals, generally magistrates and/or public prosecutors.

Topic 1: Initiation to and training in cooperation and international judicial mutual assistance in criminal matters
Topic 2: Terrorism and interconnection of criminal networks
Topic 3: International dimension of financial procedures; financial and economic criminality, in particular money laundering
Topic 4: Initiation to and training in cooperation and international judicial mutual assistance in civil matters
Topic 5: Management and administration of justice: management of procedures; computerisation
Topic 6: Justice and Commercial affairs
