The Palestinian Ministry of Justice in Ramallah works determined to increase the public’s trust in the digital systems used throughout the ministry’s purview. The ultimate aim is ensuring that the Palestinian public has full confidence in the protection of their digital data and rights.

A study visit conducted last week concludes an extensive 3-step programme designed by the Mission’s Rule of Law Section to capacitate the IT Unit of the Ministry of Justice to provide secure digital information systems and services. The programme has been implemented through on-site technical assistance and exchange of best practices on IT security. The third and final step included a 4-day long study visit to Sweden for three representatives of the ministry’s IT Unit from 25 to 28 March 2019.

These activities were implemented by EUPOL COPPS, the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support. The aim of the Mission is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements and to advise Palestinian counterparts on criminal justice and rule of law related aspects under Palestinian ownership.
