Kosovo,training of judges on judicial ethics, implementing partner CILC, 2018: My role was to review the training on the new code of ethics and to contribute on distance to the online training. It was an interesting experience to train a group of judges in that way, as one needs to adjust how the training is presented and to ensure that participants can effectively interact with the trainer.

My role was to function as the co-team leader of international experts’ team that supervised two studies with a sector wide approach to evaluate the Malian justice sector and to make recommendations for its reform.
