ICT Solutions for Justice

The Aim of the Conference

National e-justice systems are an important power for national economy and civil society. The globalization of the economy, social trends and other factors present new demands on judiciaries internationally, while at the same time technological and communicational advances offer opportunities to judicial policy makers to make justice more accessible, transparent and effective.
