The Council of Europe Project aims to improve human rights protection and rule of law, including effective national implementation of European and international instruments in Moldova, through the strengthening of key actors in relation to justice and vulnerable groups.
The Project was launched in January 2015 and it is a part of the Programme “Support to Human Rights and Democracy in Moldova (2015-2018)” funded by the Government of the Kingdom of Denmark.
