ICT Solutions for Justice - 24th October 2008

ICT4Justice – ICT solutions for criminal justice
Final Program

October 24th 2008
STEIN building, 2 Kalapothaki Street
Thessaloniki (Greece)

“In the Commission's view, a European strategy on e-Justice will bring tangible improvements to the efficiency of the administration of justice (shorter timeframes and lower costs, for example through the use of videoconferencing), the effectiveness of judicial work (easier cooperation between national authorities) and access to justice by citizens (who often have difficulty when faced with cross-border proceedings)…….
In the light of the European Council's conclusions of 21-22 June 2007 and 14 December 2007, the Commission considers that, in theory, new legislative proposals are not necessary. The e-Justice strategy does not require any new legal foundations. It can be implemented on the basis of existing legislation, which e-Justice tools will make it possible to implement more easily.” (Memo 08/351 of the European Commission, May 29th 2008).
