The EU-funded TAIEX instrument is supporting the Moldovan Government in its plan to reform the justice sector, for the benefit of Moldovan citizens. On 4th and 5th of September, experts from the European Commission and EU Member States were in Chisinau to share peer-to-peer expertise on judicial accountability, independence, integrity and performance evaluation, in the presence of international partners. Prime Minister Maia Sandu and Minister of Justice Olesea Stamate joined the workshop, signalling the centrality of the rule of law on the new Moldovan Government’s reform agenda. Expert presentations and discussions during the TAIEX Workshop raised important aspects related to the preparation of the evaluation of judicial performance. They include necessary enabling conditions, sufficient internal and external consultation, national ownership and inclusive process, communication and outreach to the citizens as well as proportionality of such intervention.
