The European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice
The European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) was founded in 2002 with the decision of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. The aim of the CEPEJ is to enhance the efficiency and functioning of the judiciary in member states and to improve the implementation of the systems prepared by the Council of Europe with this purpose.
The CEPEJ is focused on improving the rule of law and democracy in Europe. It was founded with the purpose of presenting recommendations to the 47 member states of the Council of Europe, concerning the implementations on the structuring of the judiciary, taking all the judicial processes into consideration; and finding new effective ways to provide fair trial within a reasonable time.
The second Article of the Bylaw attached to the Decision No. 2002/12 lists the duties of the CEPEJ as follows:
A communicative network including the member states was formed by CEPEJ in order for all the work to be carried out. The contact information specified by the member states are sent to the CEPEJ Secretariat via the network that CEPEJ has established.
