Launching of the Project on “Support to the implementation of the judicial reform in Armenia’’

Council of Europe launched a new Project “Support to the implementation of the judicial reform in Armenia’’ as part of the Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia 2015-2018. One part of the Project is funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe within the framework of the Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) and the second part - by the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The entire Project is implemented by the Council of Europe.

The Project aims to support the Armenian authorities in implementing judicial reform in line with 2012-2017 Strategic Programme for Legal and Judicial Reforms in the Republic of Armenia.

The Project will provide legal drafting support to the post-constitution reform process in the following areas: reform of the judiciary and disciplinary framework, institutional and capacity-building support to the Ministry of Justice, judicial institutions, Chamber of Advocates, mediators and arbitrators.

H.E. Mr. Piotr Antoni Świtalski, Ambassador, Head of Delegation of European Union to Armenia; Judith Farnworth, Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the Republic of Armenia, Minister of Justice of Armenia, Mr Simon, Tonelli, Head of the Division for Legal Cooperation, DGI of the Council of Europe, and other high ranking officials from the Armenian Judiciary and the Council of Europe delivered speeches and presentations.

In his opening remarks Minister of Justice David Harutyunyan emphasised that the Ministry and the Government of Armenia welcome this Project contributing to the Armenian judicial field reform.

Ms Natalia Voutova, Head of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan, indicated “We are delighted with our partnership with the European Union and the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and our long standing cooperation with the national partners of Armenia and look forward to the achievements of this Project. This Project is very timely as Armenia is undergoing judicial reform process following the constitutional amendments”.

 


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
