TRIIAL: Trust, Independence, Impartiality and Accountability
In 2019-2020, the lectoraat joined an international consortium for the project on TRust, Independence, Impartiality and Accountability of judges and arbitrators under the EU Charter (TRIIAL). The project, for which the research group was a co-applicant, was awarded funding from the European Commission (Horizon 2020).
Project no. 853832, JUST-JTRA-EJTR-AG-2018
Quoting from the project proposal:
“TRIIAL provides training activities and tools for judges, lawyers, arbitrators and other legal professionals in areas of salient importance for the application of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights: trust, independence, impartiality, accountability of judges and arbitrators. Its main objective is to explain and disseminate knowledge of the CFR potential for ensuring and improving the fundamental rights standards, ultimately benefiting the rule of law in the Member States.”
For more information on the project see the project website.
As part of the project (and among other educational and training activities), the lectoraat MLR Regulation will organise training for arbitrators on the Charter of Fundamental Rights.
