Rule of Law

Montenegro is a civil, democratic, ecological and social justice state, based on the rule of law (Article 1, Constitution of Montenegro). The affirmation of the principle of equality before the law, as one of the fundamental postulates of the rule of law, is the primary function of Rule of Law Department.

CEDEM was the first NGO in Montenegro to organize seminars on international and European Union legal standards. Over 900 lawyers, judges, prosecutors and other civil servants have participated in our training programs since 1999. The Rule of Law Department prepares draft laws and draft amendments to the law; organizes round tables and seminars for representatives of judicial bodies; performs monitoring of court proceedings; and prepares, publishes and distributes publications with the ultimate goal to encourage a responsible, professional, efficient and transparent judiciary in Montenegro.

The policy proposal contains key findings and recommendations for combating domestic violence, child begging and forced marriages, in order to highlight the perception, intensity, and shape of these phenomena and intensify appropriate measures to combat and prevent them. Also, this practical policy will serve professionals and professionals in carrying out activities in the field of achieving a sustainable and effective system of protection of victims of domestic violence and measures to combat forced marriages and child begging.
The proposal of the practical policy was created within the project "Together for sustainable results in the fight against domestic violence, child begging and forced marriages" supported by the Ministry of Human Rights and minority rights.
