On 24 March, the Round Table “Reform on Enforcement System in Ukraine” was held at the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.
The event was organized by the EU Project “Support to Justice Sector Reforms in Ukraine” in cooperation with the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice.
The Round Table aimed to provide strategic advice to the Ukrainian policy-makers on appropriate mechanisms for gradual introduction of the private enforcement system, by reference to the EU member states and regional comparative best practices.
“The judicial reform in Ukraine which is among top priorities is impossible without reform of the enforcement service. This is why European experience will be useful for us and we are ready to discuss various enforcement service models”, – noted Serhiy Shklyar, Deputy Minister of Justice of Ukraine, at the opening session.
The participants were the representatives of the Ministry of Justice, State Enforcement Service and non-governmental organizations. They discussed the issues of reform of the enforcement system in Ukraine, privatisation of justice sector services, normative and legal acts related to the enforcement system reform, evocation and complaint procedures by private and state enforcement services.
The experts from France, Bulgaria and Serbia presented examples of the private and mixed enforcement systems in their home countries.
