    The acquired knowledge will enable the training participants to ensure the accountability of judicial system.

    The judicial monitoring is aimed to verify the main criteria for the maintenance of the right to fair trail, particularly right to access the court, equality before the court, conducting fair and transparent/public judicial hearings by the impartial court within the deadlines set by the law. The latter enables to verify the compliance of building conditions with the needs of society all members, as well as court facilities, office and other departments’ work.

    “How to detect rule of law gaps” handbook (in Armenian, English, Georgian languages) elaborated by the experts was presented to the training participants. (http://v4.prwb.am/?page_id=128&lang=en_US, http://v4.prwb.am/?page_id=128&lang=hy)
