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.
2019-2022 Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia was adopted by the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers on 9 January 2019. 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.
We 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.
Council of Europe Office in Yerevan
Do you live in a European country that is part of the Council of Europe? Then your human rights are protected every day, in everything you do, thanks to the European Convention on Human Rights.
That makes the Convention one of the most important international treaties, and the cornerstone of everything the Council of Europe does. Now in its seventieth year, it is still changing lives everywhere.
Join us as we look back at the way it has changed the landscape of our lives and look forward to facing the challenges of the future.
