International Cooperation

Multilateral Cooperation

The Constitutional Court participates in intensive multilateral international cooperation. It is a full member of the Conference of European Constitutional Courts, ACCPUF (the Association of Constitutional Courts Using the French Language), and the European Commission for Democracy through Law (the Venice Commission) of the Council of Europe. Within the Venice Commission, the cooperation of the constitutional courts and courts of equivalent jurisdiction of the member states of the Council of Europe is institutionalized. The Constitutional Court also hosts conferences and seminars aimed at exchanging views and at dealing with issues related to the work of constitutional courts. The judges and court personnel participate in numerous international conferences and seminars.

Bilateral Cooperation 

Apart from its multilateral cooperation, the Constitutional Court is also involved in bilateral cooperation with courts in several countries. This bilateral cooperation takes the form of official or study visits of the Constitutional Court judges to the courts of other countries or visits of delegations of the courts of other countries to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Slovenia. In addition, the Constitutional Court cooperates with the Court of the Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights and fosters bilateral exchange study visits of the members and legal advisors of the Constitutional Court.
