Presentation of the results of projects in Armenia

On Tuesday, 17 October, the Council of Europe and European Union presented to media in Yerevan the results of projects for Eastern Partnership countries, including Armenia.

The four projects carried out in Armenia under the Partnership for Good Governance in 2015-2017, have focused on improving electoral processes in the country, combatting ill-treatment and impunity, strengthening healthcare and human rights protection in Armenian prisons, supporting judicial reform as well as fighting corruption in higher education in Armenia.

The projects have been funded by the EU and the Council of Europe, and are implemented by the Council of Europe. The total budget of these projects is 2.4 million euros. In addition to these country-specific projects, Armenia also participates in 14 regional initiatives covering several countries.

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
