Call for papers − EGPA Annual Conference 2017:
Permanent Study Group XVIII on Justice and Court Administration
1. Aim of the Permanent Study Group XVIII on Justice and Court Administration
The study group offers an international and multidisciplinary platform to discuss justice administration policies, projects, and studies related to the functioning of courts, public prosecution agencies, and other organizations in the justice field.
The study group wants to function as a platform, where experiences and practices of organization development, policy development, policy implementation, and research in the justice field can be exchanged and discussed. For researchers it should help them to develop research projects and for persons working in the justice field the study group is an opportunity to be informed on the latest developments in their field and to influence the development of research. The scope of all this is to build bridges between national perspectives and to build a transnational professional community in the EU and beyond, involving both academics and practitioners (judges, prosecutors, court managers). The ultimate aim is to explore common ground for cooperation and exchange in Europe in the justice field amongst policymakers, managers and academics.
Whilst we keep an interest in the institutional developments within court and justice administration, both in national, European and international perspectives, in the future we also want to focus on projects concerning the service provision by justice organizations:
