Ukraine: better communication to achieve greater transparency at the Supreme Court

April 7, 2016

Judges of Ukraine’s Supreme Court learned how to strengthen relations with the media and to build effective external and internal communications at a one-day seminar held this week by the European Union Advisory Mission (EUAM) in Ukraine. Improved communication is essential to the Supreme Court’s efforts to achieve greater transparency.
“Public access to information of one of the pillars of democracy, and media engagement is one of the main ways information is delivered to the public,” stressed Ronan Goggin, the EUAM Head of the Press and Public Information Department. “EUAM is delighted to be supporting the Supreme Court of Ukraine as it works to enhance its media-engagement practices,” he added.
A press release from the EUAM said the Supreme Court had given certain judges the status of ‘press-judges’, who are expected to handle media enquiries. They were the main participants of the event.
The EUAM was formally launched on 1 December 2014, with a mandate to support Ukrainian state agencies in the reform of the civilian security sector. The mission works towards achieving the sustainability of Ukrainian security services that will be able to deliver the rule of law and law enforcement, increase public confidence and trust, and ensure full respect for human rights.
