Universal Rights Awards 2018

On 20 February, the representatives of the international community honored individuals working to promote human rights, freedom of expression, diversity, democracy, transparency, legal reform and equal rights in Armenia at the Universal Rights Awards 2018 Ceremony. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan was a guest of honour at the ceremony.

The Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Piotr Świtalski, in his address to the nominees and guests present at the ceremony said: “I believe we have a paradigm shift – we now talk differently in Armenia, and with Armenians, about human rights. That is a big change, a result of what happened last year. We are still talking and there’s still a lot to talk about although in a different way. For the EU there are three core issues: gender equality, empowerment of women, and social rights”.
