S1 E3. Maintaining Access to Justice - Part 2: Administrative and Civil Courts
Nov 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 3
CEELI talks

Because the stakes are so high, access to justice is often considered within the context of criminal law. However, many people come into contact with the justice system to resolve non-criminal disputes. This episode will look at the role of administrative and civil courts in the pandemic crisis. What is the role of the administrative courts in holding governments to account? How can civil and administrative courts ensure their functions continue during a state of emergency? What critical decisions and urgent matters must be addressed? 

We talk to administrative judge Edith Zeller of Austria and civil judge Domagoj Frntić of Croatia to get their perspective on these matters. Matt Pollard from the International Commission of Jurists also provides a report on what the European Court of Human Rights has said about fairness in the context of remote video trials, and we shine a spotlight on the Judicial Manual on Independence, Impartiality and Integrity of Justice – a project of the Central and Eastern European Judicial Exchange Network.
