Working together on strategic planning and public relations
Strengthening capacities of the ODC
During a two-day working meeting (1st - 2nd December 2016), USAID’ Justice Activity worked together with the acting Chief Disciplinary Prosecutor, disciplinary prosecutors and employees of the Office of Disciplinary Counsel, on the Development Plan of the Office for the period from 2017 to 2019, as well as on improving communication of the ODC with the public.
The Development plan for the ODC includes activities aimed at improving the quality of work of the ODC, continuous education of employees of the ODC, and monitoring the results of work of this Office.
It was agreed that the Office would improve the content of its website, develop additional information materials and other ways to improve communication with citizens, the media and professional public. The significance of the ODC was emphasized during discussions especially with respect to enhancing integrity within the judicial community, strengthening the position of the judiciary in BiH society, and increasing transparency of the work of the ODC, and the entire judiciary.
USAID, through the Justice Activity in BiH, recognized the importance of these issues in cooperation with local partners, and above all with the HJPC and the ODC, and continues to implement activities that will ultimately result in the strengthening of accountability and transparency of the BiH judiciary and the fulfillment of the targets set before the judiciary by the citizens of this country as well as the EU.
