EJTN’s governance and structure promotes internal democracy and stimulates cooperation.

Governance is overseen by the General Assembly, which meets annually, and the Steering Committee that meets several times per year. The Secretary General ensures the proper management of the Network and its finances, initiates, co-ordinates and monitors the activities of the Network, and is the head of the EJTN Secretariat.

Dedicated Working Groups (WG) plan and implement EJTN’s projects and programmes within their respective fields. Focussed Sub-Working Groups are assembled to address specific projects or issues.

EJTN works with the European Commission (EC) and nearly 40 EU national judicial bodies, which are Members and Observers of EJTN.
