Current topics that stir the society and need 

to be addressed include overcrowded prisons, 

juvenile delinquents, post-penitentiary care, 

the lack of trained employees, the streamlining 

of the judicial system and many more. The 

“Cooperation in Judiciary” programme dealt 

with overcoming these problems; inter alia, it 

placed emphasis even on a closer cooperation 

among important actors in the judiciary and on 

improving the correctional service systems in 

compliance with international standards.
