On Monday, 23 May, representatives of law enforcement institutions from Uzbekistan visited the Supreme Court. They arrived to Latvia within the programme “Implementing Transparency and Good Governance: the Latvian Experience for Uzbekistan”.

During the visit to the Supreme Court, Uzbek colleagues met Veronika Krumina, the Chair of the Department of Administrative Cases, who provided an insight into history and development of Latvian courts. The discussion was about how strong courts help to improve public administration; on Latvian experience of access to information on work of courts, and other issues related to good governance.  

The goal of training programme organised by Riga Graduate School of Law is to share knowledge and experience of promotion of good governance and transparency, and civil participation, accumulated by Latvia during transitional period, when becoming the Member State of the European Union.  

Training programme, which lasts for three days, includes lectures, seminars and visits to Latvian institutions, which are experienced in promotion of transparency and civil participation. The training programme is practically oriented, and it must encourage Uzbek colleagues to overtake experience of Latvian institutions and best practices. Experience and knowledge is shared by leading representatives of public institutions, non-governmental organisations and higher educational institutions.
