Abstract: This report covers the period from September 1, 1999 through February 28, 2001. Internet studios were installed at 10 organizations connected with criminal justice in Moldova selected for funding. These had five computer workstations each, an NT server, network equipment, a printer, high-speed dedicated access to the Internet, technical support, and training. A 12-workstation Interagency Internet Training Center intended for training representatives from the participating agencies on the use of the Internet was also created. Based in these studios, content development activities included developing Web sites describing the host institutions’ structures, missions, policies, functional activities, and public outreach. In addition, these activities created collections of legal materials, official government documents, statistics, and other non-classified information and made them available for public access through the Internet; and provided training on general Internet use and publishing. The goals were fully met, and exceeded in several cases. Websites were established at all 10 agencies where studios had been installed. Collections of documents were placed online for each agency. Approximately 600 users were trained at the Interagency Internet Training Center and agency studios. The new content placed online promotes the goal of a civil society in Moldova by informing citizens of how their legal institutions operate and of their rights within the legal system. It helps criminal justice professionals work with each other by improving their ability to communicate with each other and promoting greater awareness of the workings of each of their agencies. The training provides an ongoing investment in the ability of legal professionals to come up with their own solutions of how to better serve the goal of civil society. 2 appendices
