Strengthening Enforcement of Court Decisions in Mongolia

Mongolia’s rapid economic and social growth over the last few years is threatened by low-quality and unenforced court decisions. Despite a series of judicial reforms launched by the Government, Mongolia still lacks the legislative framework necessary to enforce court decisions or a strategy to address a growing caseload. Moreover, bailiffs’ inadequate legal knowledge and skills weaken the credibility and efficiency of the judiciary system and impede its proper functioning.

IDLO’s work aims to promote more effective enforcement of court decisions by strengthening Mongolia’s General Executive Agency of Court Decisions as well as building the capacity of Mongolian bailiffs. To this end, national and international experts supported a team in the Ministry of Justice by drafting amendments to the existing legislation on enforcement of court decisions. In addition to this, IDLO has trained bailiffs to increase their knowledge and learn to teach the skills acquired to their peers.
