Continuation of cooperation in Tunisia

Published: June 5, 2014
Staff members of the IRZ and representatives of the Tunisian Administrative Court ("Tribunal Administratif"), the Tunisian Chamber of Notaries and the Tunisian Ministry of Justice met during the activities of the "Transformation Partnership" financed by the Federal Foreign Office and the Institute for Foreign Relation.

At this occasion, 27 computers were handed over to the Tunisian Administrative Court. Despite its great willingness to carry out reforms, Tunisia does still not have the required financial means in many cases to implement its envisaged modernisations. The computer donation is part of a contents-related cooperation kicked off in 2013. One of the events organised by the IRZ in cooperation with the DAAD was a two-week colloquium dealing with "Modern Administrative and Private Law", which was attended, amongst others, by four judges of the Tribunal Administratif.

During the symbolic handover which took place at the Administrative Court of Tunis on 23 January 2014 the Court President Ms Raoudha Mechichi thanked the IRZ for the donation and pointed out the big interest in a continuation of the contents-related cooperation in 2014 and further on. The IRZ has planned a professional exchange with the Federal Constitutional Court and the Federal Administrative Court in this context as well as further specialised seminars in Tunis covering relevant constitutional and administrative issues.

Furthermore, the IRZ has handed over a book donation to the Centre d'├ętudes Juridiques et Judiciaires (CEJJ) for its library. The CEJJ is an institute for legal and judicial studies supervised by the Ministry of Justice where delegated judges are concerned/deal with the drafting of bills, amongst other things.
