- The Bangalore Declaration
- Opinion no. 4 of the Consultative Council of European Judges
- The Principles of Judicial Education of the Canadian judicial training institute (NJI, National Judicial Institute).
The two declarations of principles
In 2015, two initiatives emerged from judicial training institutes that aimed to define the principles behind their action. These initiatives would lead to two declarations
- The European Declaration of Fundamental Judicial Training Principles, dating from June 2016, adopted by the EJTN. This declaration provides a basis and a common framework for the European judicial area and the judicial training institutions.
- The Declaration of Judicial Training Principles, dating from November 2017, adopted by the International Organisation for Judicial Training (IOJT). This declaration is the fruit of an initiative proposed by the ENM in 2015 at the 7th IOJT conference. It was the first global declaration laying down a set of universal principles of judicial training. It has been approved by 129 member institutes of the IOJT, from 79 countries. This instrument provides international standards for the training of judges and prosecutors, to reinforce their contribution to the rule of law.
