Trial Waiver Systems in Europe (TWSE)
In the EU context the objective of the project is to provide comparable data and analysis on the implementation of safeguards provided for in the EU Directives. This data would allow us to identify potential common threats trial waiver systems pose to the right to a fair trial across the Member States and candidate countries and make recommendations to address them. In addition to EU context, an equally important objective of the project is to identify risks and best practices specific to each jurisdiction. The objective of the project is to develop practical, country-specific understanding of the impact of trial waiver systems on the right to a fair trial and develop guidance on best practices adapted to each country.
