Chapter 8 Why is the complaints procedure still lacking in Italy? The difficult pathway towards a more transparent, inclusive and effective disciplinary system
Restricted access

This Chapter summarizes the evolution of the disciplinary system in Italy, making a distinction between the statutory regime pre-2006 and post-2006. In 2006 the Parliament passed an important reform which reshaped the disciplinary system for judges and prosecutors and introduced significant improvements. No attention, however, was devoted to the complaints system. The Chapter identifies the reasons of for this deficiency and it then focuses on two points: the need to improve the complaints system, balancing confidentiality and transparency, and the need to regularly monitor the case law of the Disciplinary Commission to make it genuinely accountable to the general public.
