Even the best functioning courts, without effective mechanisms for ensuring compliance with their decisions, are in effect perceived as weak institutions, leading to an erosion of public confidence in the rule of law as a whole. Despite the progress achieved by the judicial system of the Kyrgyz Republic in improving its commercial law capacity, enforcement of judicial decisions remains a hindrance to an effective commercial dispute resolution framework.
IDLO, in partnership with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, is implementing a project that aims to address both the institutional strengthening and the regulatory needs of the Court Department, while at the same time seeking to make these improvements sustainable by building up the capacity of the bailiffs from within, introducing innovative and enduring training solutions for the bailiff corps. IDLO will advise the Ministry of Justice on legislative reform as well as the Court Department on institutional development issues. The project will produce sub-legislation developed to ensure effective implementation of the Law on the Status of Court Enforcement Agents and Enforcement Procedure and will see that practical enhancements are realized in the institutional operation of the Court Department.
