Welcome to the Council of Europe Office in Chisinau
I am pleased to welcome you to the official web site of the Council of Europe Office in Chisinau. Moldova became a member of the Council of Europe on 13 July 1995. The Parliament of the Republic of Moldova ratified the European Convention on Human Rights on 24 July 1997. The Information Office of the Council of Europe was set up in Chisinau on 30 June 1997, at the request of the government of the Republic of Moldova.
I hope this homepage will serve as a gateway to information about the Council of Europe, its relations with the Republic of Moldova, as well as Council of Europe Office activities in Moldova. We are delighted to share it with everyone interested and are certain that you will make the best use out of it.
Our Office seeks to assist the State to fulfil its membership commitments to the Council of Europe, to facilitate, maintain and strengthen working relations between the Council of Europe and the national central, regional and local authorities, representatives of civil society and the media.
The Council of Europe has the longest history of all existing European cooperation organisations. It remains one of the most important inter-governmental organisations in Europe and plays a unique role in safeguarding the rights of the individual citizen, promoting democracy, the rule of law and human rights throughout the European continent. The Council of Europe acts on daily basis and through political dialog and action, including legal and judicial area, to transform these values into reality for 800 million people.
Today, Democracy and Human Rights are still key factors of progress: they have a strong influence on our wellbeing and are a basic requirement to ensure a sustainable quality of life. They play an essential role in building peace and stability in the continent. We must never compromise on our commitments to uphold human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
Enjoy exploring our site and do not hesitate to contact us with your questions and comments.
