Administrative Court Judges from the MENA Region in Munich

Judicial transparency and public trust in judicial institutions are fundamental to a well-functioning and efficient judiciary in a rule-of-law based state. The judiciary can itself play a key role in building transparency and public trust in the judicial system, among others, by fostering a broad access to court decisions but also by engaging in proactive public relations. In this light, The Rule of Law Programme Middle East / North Africa is organizing from 10 to 14 November 2019 a 5-day peer-to-peer study program for administrative court judges from the MENA region to the Administrative Court of Munich, the Bavarian High Administrative Court and other relevant judicial institutions in Germany. The aim is to provide a platform of exchange of expertise and a practical insight into the administrative judiciary in Germany.

Constitutional Control and the Rule of Law in the Middle East and North Africa

Presentation and Discussion of Findings (2017-2019)
Political stability, sustainable economic development, and the creation of opportunities for younger generations in North Africa and the Middle East are crucial for the future of Europe. Eight years after the Arab Spring, many parts of the region are still struggling with the consequences of armed conflict, an imbalance of power in favor of the executive, and challenges to the rule of law. At the same time, several countries have undertaken significant reforms. Initiatives to improve institutional structures and procedures are abundant. What does German and European foreign policy and development cooperation need to be aware of, and what can be done in order to foster the rule of law, efficient administration and a level of freedom that allows for investments, innovations and social peace in the region?
