The Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection (BMJv) is engaged in an exchange of information and expertise with GIZ on the various measures the two are implementing in the field of international legal and judicial cooperation.

This focuses, for example, on improving legislation and judicial systems in transition and emerging countries, facilitating exchanges for legal experts, providing further professional training, arranging study visits for foreign legal professionals in Germany and in the partner countries themselves, and organising platforms for learning and sharing experiences.

GIZ also assists the Ministry to secure funding from the EU. In addition, the Ministry contributes to the German-Chinese Rule of Law Dialogue, which GIZ is supporting on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
