Conference presenting main achievements of the Project
Conference, presenting main achievements of the European Union and Council of Europe Project 'Strengthening Integrity and Combatting Corruption in Higher Education in Armenia', opened in Yerevan. The conference, organised at the end of the second year of the Project implementation, brought together some 80 educational professionals and decision makers from the higher education system in Armenia and international experts, to take a closer look at the results achieved and lessons learnt.
In her opening address, Ms Karine Harutyunyan, the Deputy Minister of Education and Science, stressed, in  particular, the  Project input into the revision of the higher education legislation, which aims to support institutional autonomy and support transparent higher education governance.
The conference which involved two intensive days of interactive sessions, allowed discussing the practical materials, such as model codes of ethics for all actors in higher education institutions and toolkits ensuring transparency and accountability, which were the latest outcomes of the project.

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan.

The Office represents the Secretary General of the Organisation in Armenia. It closely co-operates with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other national authorities supporting the implementation of statutory obligations to the Council of Europe by Armenia. The Office also co-ordinates and implements a number of Projects and Programmes supporting legislative and institutional reforms in Armenia.

A new 2015-2018 Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia was adopted by the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers on 15 September 2015. It constitutes the strategic framework for the co-operation of the Organisation with the Armenian authorities with a view to promote current reforms in the country. The four main directions of action under the document are: protecting and promoting human rights, ensuring justice, combatting threats to the rule of law, as well as promoting democratic governance.

As part of our continued outreach, the Office is also committed to working closely with NGOs, the media, and the public at large.

I hope that the information and resources available on this website will be helpful to address your questions related to the activities of our Office and the Council of Europe in Armenia.

Thank you.

Natalia Voutova

Head of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan
