We are currently working on the translation of a handbook on access to justice in Europe from English into German. The handbook is jointly prepared by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) and the Council of Europe together with the Registry of the European Court of Human Rights and will soon be published in several languages.
It seeks to improve knowledge of relevant legal standards set by the European Union and the Council of Europe, particularly through the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).
The handbook is designed to serve as a practical guide for judges, prosecutors and legal practitioners involved in litigation in the EU and in Council of Europe member states. Another target group are non-governmental organisations and other bodies that assist victims in accessing justice.
