The corruption continues to pose a major threat to local and regional governance and democracy in Europe, and this needs the urgent response and actions from the governments and parliaments at all levels. To this end, the Congress activities in Armenia seek to raise the awareness and improve the skills of the local authorities and elected representatives on political integrity, ethics, transparency, open government and participatory decision making as a means to enhance citizen’s confidence and trust in local political actors and institutions.

This thematic area directly contributes to the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals 11 (Sustainable cities and communities), 16 (Peace, justice and strong institutions) and 17 (Partnership for the goals).
