Enhancing Sustainability of Judicial Training in Kyrgyzstan

Since Kyrgyzstan's independence in 1991, the country's Judiciary has suffered from financial shortfalls. This resulted in a lack of capacity to improve the quality of decision making and regularly update the level of judges' knowledge of current legislation. One particular area of importance for judicial training is commercial law, crucial for Kyrgyzstan in seeking to reduce corruption and spur economic development.

IDLO, in partnership with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), is implementing Phase VI of a project on “Sustainability of Judicial Capacity Building in Kyrgyzstan.” Under this project, running from June 2015 to January 2017, IDLO is helping the Kyrgyz Republic’s High Justice Training Center strengthen the sustainability of its delivery of quality training to judges, particularly in the area of commercial law.
