Strengthening the Independence, Professionalism and Accountability of the Justice System in Armenia
A Joint Project between the European Union and the Council of Europe supported during 31 months the Armenian Authorities in “Strengthening the Independence, Professionalism and Accountability of the Justice System in Armenia” in line with the Government 2012-2016 Strategic Programme for Legal and Judicial Reforms in the Republic of Armenia.
This project achieved substantial results in legislative drafting in line with Council of Europe standards. This included drafting a new Code for Administrative offences, a new Civil Procedure Code and revisions of the Civil Code. It has also provided invaluable input to the amended law on Commercial Arbitration, drafting of the legal provisions of mediation, introduction of the institute of mediation and their practical implementation.
