1.        Background​


Globally, the drive towards the digitization of justice is bred out of the understanding that information technology can lead to improvements in efficiency and facilitate access to justice. The drafting of the first Digital Justice Strategy and Action Plan builds upon developments in the national digital landscape, and in the field of justice, to provide a consolidated roadmap to the transition to digital justice.

The draft digital strategy is the result of sector-wide consultations carried out by the experts from the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) within the framework of a project funded by the EU Structural Reform Support Services (SRSS) entitled ‘Establishing a Digital Strategy for the Maltese Justice Sector’. The feedback received during the public consultation will help formulate the final Digital Justice Strategy that will be launched later on this year and that will run for 6 years between 2022 and 2027.

The Ministry for Justice and Governance welcomes written comments and representations from interested parties and stakehodlers during the consultation process. Details of how to submit responses can be found in the consultation document.
