The European Commission has now published the 2017 Justice Work Programme (click here).
As mentioned on the Commission website and relevant documents:
The Commission will continue to support activities and actions developed by public authorities, universities, NGOs, and other organisations in the field of: Judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters; Judicial training; Access to justice, including rights of victims of crime, and rights of the defence; Drugs initiatives.
As in the previous years, significant resources will be devoted to the training of judges, prosecutors and other legal practitioners on civil and criminal law instruments. Training is key for the correct application of the already adopted instruments and building bridges between different justice systems. [See page 17 and following.]
2017 calls for proposals for operating and action grants are expected to be published by the end of March 2017 on the Participant Portal.
