As a continuation of previous activities, the Mission works to further improve the protection of human rights in Montenegro by supporting human rights institutions in their efforts to exercise their obligations under national and international legislation and standards. Taking into account needs assessment of the beneficiaries, project activities will entail specially-tailored trainings, academic discussions, regional cooperation, in-place expert support, study visits, courses, workshops, strategic planning, and public surveys. Montenegro’s constitutional complaint mechanism has de facto established the Constitutional Court as the highest national authority issuing final and binding decisions on human rights. Since then, the protection of human rights and freedoms via the process of constitutional complaint has become a main function of the Constitutional Court. One project goal aims to support the Constitutional Court in improving its capacity to deal with the constitutional complaint mechanism. Upon the request of the CC, the Mission will among other activities organize English language courses specifically tailored to the professional needs of judges and their staff.
In the lights of above, the Rule of Law and Human Rights Programme requires the services of the local expert to improve English-language capacities of Constitutional Court judges and staff so that they are able to access court decisions, legal articles, and other documents in support of their work. The English language teacher will be engaged to conduct the courses at the CC on a three days-weekly basis for three months. It will enable judges and advisers to use case-law of the ECHR, case law of other CCs, as well as foreign literature. It will facilitate contacts with foreign institutions and bodies working in this area, e.g. the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe.
