Practical Guidelines
On Use Of Social
Media By Judges

Central and Eastern European Context

Summary

We are delighted to launch our video highlighting the work of our Judicial Network and to coincide with the publication of‚ Practical Guidelines on Use of Social Media by Judges: Central and Eastern European Context‘. The Guidelines recognize that participation on social media platforms is an intrinsic part of modern life; they also recognize that for many judges, participation on social media actually contributes to their public outreach efforts and their effort to build public interest in and trust of the judiciary. Since there has been very little specific standards or guidance to date regarding these issues, judges often have to come up with their own individual solutions or approaches, which might lead them into situations involving conflicts of interests and ethical dilemmas.

The new Guidelines summarize discussions that the Network members have had over the past several years and provide recommendations for behavior and conduct on social media. The document is relevant to any individual judge who is active on social media as well as to anyone responsible for setting national guidelines for judicial conduct. This includes members of judicial councils, court presidents, officials from judicial associations, and any other members of the judiciary who need to set regulations on the behavior of judges on social media.

 

If you would like a hard copy of the Guidelines, please contact Freda Grealy at freda.grealy@ceeli.eu

These guidelines are available for download below in English, Czech, Macedonian, Polish, Serbian, Bulgarian, Romanian, Albanian, and Bosnian.
