Abstract: Reforms in the Belgian judiciary have been on the agenda for a long time. Several proposals were formulated, but implementation was lacking. This changed under the former government who introduced a reform, based on three main aspects: scale enlargement, mobility of staff, and management autonomy for the judiciary. The current government has launched a new ‘justice plan’, which builds further on these ideas. In this chapter we discuss the main reform efforts since the nineties and explain why some reforms have been successful or not.
