FGV to develop strategic management guidelines for Superior Court of Appeals for next two years
At a ceremony held on the morning of Friday, August 28, the president of Fundação Getulio Vargas, Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal, and the president of the Superior Court of Appeals, Justice Humberto Martins, who took office the day before, signed a technical cooperation agreement aimed at establishing strategic management guidelines for the court over the next two years (2020-2022).
The event was also attended by the court’s vice president, Justice Jorge Mussi, and Justice Luis Felipe Salomão. Justices Herman Benjamin, Og Fernandes, Marco Aurélio Bellizze, Marco Buzzi, Moura Ribeiro, Sérgio Kukina and Sebastião Reis Júnior, as well as FGV specialists, took part virtually.
In his speech, the Superior Court of Appeals’ president, Humberto Martins, said that the choice of FGV was underpinned by the institution’s solid track record of more than 75 years in education, research and the training of highly qualified people to work in public and private sector administration.
The work will be done by FGV’s Center for Judicial Innovation, Administration and Research, whose mission is to help improve the justice system and promote research, studies, public goods, academic activities and debates, under the coordination of Luis Felipe Salomão, who is both a Superior Court of Appeals justice and professor.
Besides establishing management guidelines for the Superior Court of Appeals, the cooperation agreement will create guidelines for any activities that violate anti-corruption legislation, bans on discrimination, prejudice and harassment, and environmental protection rules.
The project will be carried out in two phases by a team of specialists in planning, management, artificial intelligence and compliance. The first report, which will encompass data planning and collection, will be presented to the court’s president in October of this year. In the second phase, this data will be compiled, analyzed and systematized, and new strategic management guidelines will be produced. These activities make up the work plan prepared by FGV and approved by the court.
Research already conducted by FGV’s Center for Judicial Innovation, Administration and Research, as well as studies divulged by the National Justice Council and other national and international judicial organizations, will contribute to this work.
