Following on from a recent meeting between a delegation of honourable Judges of the Constitutional Court of Jordan, the Judicial Institute of Jordan and Research Fellows from the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and the Rule of Law, the Foundation announces the launching of a project to support these two important judicial institutions in Jordan. The meeting was graciously attended by, and facilitated through the cooperation and assistance of the IRZ.
In close cooperation with the Constitutional Court and the Judicial Institute of Jordan, the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and the Rule of Law endeavours to deliver a project consisting of three components tailored to the specific needs of the two institutions with the aim of enhancing the institutional capacities of the Judges and staff of the two institutions and providing additional institutional support.
The first two components of the project will focus on working with the Judges of the Constitutional Court with the aim of enhancing and strengthening the Constitutional Court’s capacity, assisting the honourable Justices in the performance of the Court’s core functions and in the building of a legal library. The third component aims at collaborating with the Judicial Institute to provide Judges of the ordinary courts with a better understanding of the functions of the Constitutional Court and its Judges, their respective jurisdictions and competences and the interaction between the Constitutional Court and ordinary courts.
Working in close cooperation with the Institutions, an overall time frame of approximately 15 months is foreseen for the entire project in order to achieve the stated objectives.
