The Council of Europe promotes the right to information in Moldova

The Office of the Council of Europe in Chisinau and the European Union Project “Support for structured policy dialogue, coordination of the implementation of the Association Agreement and enhancement of the legal approximation process in the Republic of Moldova,” in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice, organised on 9 and 10 June the international conference “Making right to information work in practice: from new law on access to information to institutional changes in the Republic of Moldova.”

The conference took place in the context of the development by the Ministry of Justice of a new law on access to information. One of the solutions addressed during the conference was the creation of an independent institution responsible for access to information (Information Commissioners). In this regard, the Information Commissioner from Ireland, and representatives from Slovenia, Albania, as well as experts from Balkan countries shared their experience in enhancing the transparency of public bodies with the conference participants, analysed lesson learnt and explored the best practices that can be taken over and applied in the Republic of Moldova.


Following the decision of the Committee of Ministers on 16 March 2022 the Russian Federation is no longer a member of the Council of Europe. The website will be updated as soon as possible to take account of this development.
