The Effective Rule of Law Program in Kosovo worked to promote the independent and effective operation of the justice system in Kosovo by strengthening the courts, the Ministry of Justice, the Judicial Council and Judicial Institute, and other justice sector institutions. Among other activities, Checchi provided technical assistance to enhance the Judicial Institute’s capacity for training judges, prosecutors and court administrators; strengthened the Judicial Council’s ability to fulfill its oversight and disciplinary functions; and helped with the streamlining and modernization of the court system. In addition, Checchi worked closely with local civil society organizations to increase public understanding of the justice system.
