On 15 November, the EU Ambassador to Armenia Andrea Wiktorin participated in the “Challenges and Reform: Human Rights in Closed Institutions” conference, which was organised within the framework of the EU-supported “A Public Glimpse into a Closed World: Increasing Awareness on the Human Rights Situation in Closed Institutions” project. The conference presented the results of a 2-year project. The total project budget is €278,072, of which the European Union contribution is €264,168.
The EU Ambassador was impressed with the results of the project: “It is easy to say that the government has to change the situation but civil society also has a responsibility. Change will only occur if we discuss the issue publicly – it is not enough just to change the law, we need to change the mindset of the society”.
