Civil participation in local decision-making

On 20-21 and 22-23 March 2018 capacity building training on “Civil participation in local decision-making” took place in Aghveran, Armenia. The training brought together representatives of all 52 consolidated communities in the country, including elected officials and municipality staff members. International and local experts presented the toolkit of the Centre of Expertise for Local Government Reform and shared their experience of working in different contexts. The training participants were engaged in practical exercises and active discussions.

Following the training, CoE expertise will be provided to the targeted communities to conduct community and stakeholder analysis, which will support them in future policy planning and development.

The training was organised in cooperation with the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development in Armenia.

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan.

The Office represents the Secretary General of the Organisation in Armenia. It closely co-operates with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other national authorities supporting the implementation of statutory obligations to the Council of Europe by Armenia. The Office also co-ordinates and implements a number of Projects and Programmes supporting legislative and institutional reforms in Armenia.

A new 2015-2018 Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia was adopted by the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers on 15 September 2015. It constitutes the strategic framework for the co-operation of the Organisation with the Armenian authorities with a view to promote current reforms in the country. The four main directions of action under the document are: protecting and promoting human rights, ensuring justice, combatting threats to the rule of law, as well as promoting democratic governance.

As part of our continued outreach, the Office is also committed to working closely with NGOs, the media, and the public at large.

I hope that the information and resources available on this website will be helpful to address your questions related to the activities of our Office and the Council of Europe in Armenia.

Thank you.

Natalia Voutova

Head of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan
