The Turkish Europe Ministry working with the Ministry of Justice has delivered six training sessions to improve awareness about the justice and fundamental rights chapter of the EU acquis. 431 Turkish lawyers have been trained. The project includes a study visit to the UK and a closing conference to take place in the autumn. We will be evaluating the impact of the project once it closes later this year.
