The Regional Cooperation Council established Western Balkans Working Group on Justice (WGJ) in May 2014. The Group is assisting in the implementation of the RCC’s South Est Europe 2020 Strategy, particularly in the area of justice under the Governance for Growth Pillar of the Strategy.

It consists of high level representatives (directors and assistant ministers ) of ministries of justice from the region who are actively involved in RCC’s planning and evaluating activities in the area of justice and participate in most of the other activities in justice dimension organised by RCC.

The WGJ operates under the auspices of RCC Secretariat with the programming, implementation, reporting and monitoring on the activities within justice dimension. It meets minimum twice a year.
