Three new EU-funded projects focused on improving labour and social rights in Armenia were launched on 11 June. The event was co-chaired by Gonzalo Serrano, Head of Cooperation at the EU Delegation to Armenia, Deputy Minister of Labour and Social Affairs of Armenia Ruben Sargsyan, and the Head of the Healthcare and Labour Inspectorate of Armenia Hakob Avagyan.
The three projects are funded under the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR). The total EU contribution amounts to €1.138 million.
The projects will be implemented by three civil society consortia led by OxYGen, Helsinki Citizens Assembly Vanadzor, and the Union of ICT Employers. Within these consortia 14 civil society organisations from across Armenia will be involved in project activities.
