Key results discussed at Conference of the Project “Strengthening Integrity and Combatting Corruption in Higher Education in Armenia”

What was the impact of the Project “Strengthening Integrity and Combatting Corruption in Higher Education in Armenia”?

What has been achieved? The project results were discussed during a conference that took place in Yerevan on 30 November. Organised in co-operation with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Armenia, the conference brought together educational professionals and decision makers of the higher education field from Armenia and other European countries to take a closer look on the results achieved, share experiences, discuss lessons learned and priority issues that should be addressed in the future.

The project “Strengthening Integrity and Combatting Corruption in Higher Education in Armenia” focused on two main objectives: i) implementing the micro projects promoting integrity and transparency in higher education by grantee organisations and ii) building capacity of higher education institutions and their staff in implementing ethical standards and developing mechanisms for transparency and accountability.

Activities under the micro projects included initiatives to develop a public awareness strategy, communication campaigns to prevent corruption in higher education and policy recommendations to detect fraud in education.

A series of trainings and awareness-raising activities were organised for management and academic staff of the universities to roll-out the model Code of Ethics, to develop rules and procedures regulating corruption, bribery and integrity and to enhance accountability and transparency in curriculum development and student assessment.

A set of recommendations were presented to the Ministry of Education and Science on further endorsement of the Online Platform in governance of higher education institutions (HEIs), Codes of Ethics development, improvement of the human resources management, student assessment and curriculum development by HEIs.

The project is funded under the European Union and Council of Europe Partnership for Good Governance in the Eastern Partnership Countries for 2015-2017. The conference was organised at the end of the third year of the project implementation.

 

 


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
