The EU-Council of Europe Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) programme will present the results of its actions in Armenia, as well as its plans for 2021 at the programme Steering Committee meeting for Armenia on Monday 8 February.
The participants will assess the impact of COVID-19 on the implementation of the programme, and discuss mitigation measures undertaken by the project to address the most urgent needs of the Armenian authorities with regard to domestic reforms in the field of judiciary, combating corruption and discrimination.
The programme is implementing two country-specific projects in Armenia for the period 2019-2021, with a total budget of €2,630,000. These projects assist the country’s authorities to strengthen institutional capacities to fight and prevent corruption and to implement judicial reforms.
Armenia is also taking part in four regional PGG projects aimed at strengthening measures to prevent and combat economic crime, strengthening the profession of lawyer in line with European standards, facilitating the access of women to justice, and strengthening the access to justice through non-judiciary redress mechanisms for victims of discrimination, hate crime and hate speech. The total budget of these projects is €3.7 million.
The EU provides 80% of the funding of the projects, while the Council of Europe provides the rest of the funding and is in charge of their implementation.
