25/10/2019

Today, the public discussion on the draft National Strategy for Human Rights Protection and the Action Plan for 2020-2022 deriving therefrom started with participation of Deputy Minister of Justice Kristinne Grigoryan. It was organised by joint efforts of the Ministry of Justice and the Partnership for Open Society Initiative, aiming at making the process of developing strategic documents more participatory.

About three dozens of representatives of public and private sectors participated in the event.

Welcoming the participants of the discussion, Deputy Minister Grigoryan presented the main provisions of the Strategy, emphasising that the Ministry was frank in the process of developing the Strategy and fairly assessed the situation, identifying all those issues that exist in the field of human rights protection. The Deputy Minister added that only by facing the problems it will be possible to identify the right ways of solution thereof in the upcoming years.

 

Summarising her welcoming speech, Kristinne Grigoryan also congratulated the community interested in the protection of human rights on the occasion of Armenia being elected as a member of United Nations Human Rights Council, emphasising that this is one more step towards the fact that Armenia is shifting from a country exhausting rights to a country creating rights. A number of representatives of civil society highly appreciated this fact in their speeches as well.

Afterwards, draft National Strategy for Human Rights Protection and Action Plan was discussed.
