The Coalition has completed several comprehensive researches, elaborated tens of recommendations to improve the legislation governing the justice system, has held several public fora and discussions. The Coalition regularly presents its views to the representatives of executive, legislative and judicial branches, collaborates with the Venice Commission and other important international organizations. The Coalition also actively works with media to raise public awareness of the problems existing in the judiciary.

The Coalition’s activities are mainly carried out in working groups, the priorities of which change according to the Coalition objectives. Currently three working groups are active: Court Administration, Criminal Law Reform, and Minority Rights and Gender Equality in the Justice System.
