Support to Judicial Reform. Establishment of Public Council of Integrity

UBA Project “Support to Judicial Reform. Establishment of Public Council of Integrity”.

Public Council of Integrity - a completely new judicial institution for Ukraine with no analogues in Europe so far.  It is expected to become an important public tool in the evaluation of the qualification of judges. That is why the process of its establishment should be transparent and available for public.

Main tasks:

  1. Ensuring maximum transparency of the Public Council of Integrity provided by the Law of Ukraine "On the Judiciary and Status of Judges";
  2. Development of high-quality regulatory framework (by-laws) of its activities pursuant to the Law, analysis and compliance with the international recommendations and standards;
  3. Complete and reliable public information about the status of the Council, its mandate and role in the implementation of the judicial reform in Ukraine;
  4. Facilitating a public discussion of key aspects of the process of formation and future performance of the Public Council of Integrity with the involvement of experts both local and international.

Expected result:

  1. Ensuring transparency in the formation of the Public Council of Integrity;
  2. Raising awareness of the public and legal community in particular about the activities, powers and the role of the Public Council of Integrity;
  3. Facilitating the implementation on of the judicial reform in Ukraine.
