Armenia is a young democracy. The governance system does not yet provide sufficient access and options for meaningful participation of citizens both locally and nationally. There is little confidence in overall reliability and effectiveness of the justice system and corruption is one of the major challenges facing society.
What we do
UNDP is currently implementing a number of innovative projects, such as providing high-level policy advice to Armenian authorities in areas such as human rights and democracy, justice, liberty and security and free trade in the frame of Armenia’s EU integration policy; modernizing three Armenian-Georgian border crossing points (together with the European Union and the National Security Council), which implies also enhanced accountability, transparency and integrity of border agencies to facilitate trade and transit and instil public confidence.more
Projects and Initiatives
Armenia has over 25,000 rules and regulations that are there to promote socio-economic development in the country. Many are sensible and well designed, but many of them have contradictions and inconsistencies that create a heavy administrative burden for citizens and businesses, as well as slow economic growth.more
