Until recently, court processes in the Kyrgyz Republic have not been automated. Manual or paper systems still are required and are the norm although automating all processes has started very actively. According the country’s National Target Program for Development of the Judiciary, automated information systems need to be expanded and rolled out to the whole judicial system, not only within all first instance courts, but also second and third instance courts.
Funded by the European Union and the Federal Republic of Germany, IDLO is implementing a project that aims to expand the Court Automated Information System throughout the judiciary as part of efforts to support the judiciary to become more independent, transparent, efficient and accessible. Under this project, IDLO is working to ensure that the courts’ IT systems become fully operational and sustainable, allowing the judiciary to independently handle the maintenance and future evolution of automated information systems. Furthermore, IDLO is facilitating the development of relevant training materials and will carry out trainings and workshops for court personnel and judges.
