On 8-9 June, a high-level Conference was held in Yerevan, Armenia, co-organised by the Council of Europe and the Constitutional Court of Armenia. The President of the Constitutional Court, Mr Arman Dilanyan; the Ambassador, Head of the European Union Delegation to Armenia, H.E. Andrea Wiktorin; the Head of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan, Ms Martina Schmidt and the Head of the Department for the Implementation of Human Rights, Justice and Legal Co-operation Standards of the Council of Europe, Mr Frédéric Dolt, presented opening remarks.
A keynote address by the President of the European Commission for Democracy through Law (Venice Commission), Ms Claire Bazy-Malaurie, focused on the role of the judiciary in preserving democracy and democratic values in society.
The high-level Conference served as a platform to facilitate dialogue between the Constitutional Court, courts of general jurisdiction and other branches of authority, alongside the international community and civil society concerning ways through which the independence of the judiciary could be strengthened and public trust increased, as well as ongoing reforms in the justice sector of Armenia.
This conference was organised in the framework of the project “Support to judicial reform-strengthening the independence and professionalism of the judiciary in Armenia,” funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe in their Partnership for Good Governance II 2019-2022.
