EUAM activities in the area of Rule of Law

More than 70 investigative judges from all across Ukraine today took part in a seminar – organised by the European Union Advisory Mission (EUAM) and the National School of Judges – that aimed to form an understanding of international standards for investigative judges in criminal proceedings, practices of the European Court of Human Rights, and to assist with issues arising during the daily work of an investigative judge. Participants were representatives of courts of appeal and first instance courts in Ukraine, and the conclusions of the seminar will soon be put in a handbook and curriculum, which can be used not only by investigative judges, but also by investigators and prosecutors. Today’s event is among an active programme of activities EUAM is carrying out to support rule of law reform in Ukraine. To get a taste of some of the other related activities, this video gives a short overview: 

Ukrainian police ready to put public-order concept into practice following month-long programme

EUAM today completed a month-long training programme in public order policing based on EU best practices (and the Scandinavian model) – a follow-up to the public order concept that was officially adopted in Ukraine last August. Participants in the programme included regional police department commanders, preventive units heads, and platoon commanders from Kyiv city and region, Dnipro, Poltava, and Ternopil. Significantly, professors from National Academy of Internal Affairs also took part, which will help to engrain the reformed approach in Ukraine’s police education system. These images show some of the live exercises and simulations conducted during the programme, with police practising how to manage crowds during mass events.
