The visit is taking place at the invitation of European Court chairman Jean-Paul Costa and aims to acquaint Slovakia's new Constitutional Court judges with European Court activities and processes.

The resolution of gaps in the Slovak constitution through European Court rulings, court delays and financial compensations awarded by the European Court will all be discussed. The delegation will also seek to strengthen cooperation between the two courts.
