Elections news IOJT and EAJTN!

Between 30 October and 3 November 2022, the 10th biannual edition of the International Organization for Judicial Training (IOJT) international conference on the Training of the Judiciary was held in Ottawa, Canada.
At the General Assembly meeting held on 2 November 2022, which is part of the conference programme, Mr. Raf Van Ransbeeck, magistrate and director of the IFJ, was elected Deputy Secretary General.
The main tasks are to assist the President and the Secretary General in planning the scientific program for the IOJT Conferences and to assist in generating minutes and records of IOJT official activities. In addition, the Deputy Secretary General leads the Nomination Committee and oversees the IOJT election and appointment process.

A few weeks later, on 23 and 24 November 2022, the General Assembly of the Euro-Arab Judicial Training Network (REAFJ) also took place in Barcelona.
The agenda included also elections for the biennual mandates of President and Vice-President of the Network (alternating annually), as well as for membership in the Board of Directors comprising three European and three Arab member states of the Network.
The Belgian JTI was re-elected for both mandates, and will thus be able to use these mandates again to help guide the development of the Network's policies and strive for its further anchoring and professionalism.
