The selection, appointment and promotion of judges

In Albania the Foundation prepared a report for the Magistrates’ School (the judges’ training school) in which it recommended new methods for sifting candidates for entry to the School.  Its recommendations were accepted, and their implementation led to a dramatic reduction in the number of aspiring candidates, now that it was seen that entry to the School could no longer be obtained by improper pressure or nepotism.

This success led the Albanian authorities to consider whether similar transparently fair procedures could be introduced into the appointment and promotion systems for judges. The Foundation is providing on-going assistance to the Magistrates’ School.
