We are delighted to recently that we have been awarded a contract by the European Commission to implement a two-year Justice Sector Reform project in Armenia.  The project aims to strengthen the capacities of the Government and particularly the Ministry of Justice, the Supreme Judicial Council, the Anti-Corruption Court, the Specialized Anti-Corruption Department at the Prosecutor General’s Office and other key justice/anti-corruption institutions.  The project will be providing advice and support on forward planning, strategic thinking, management, public finance management, monitoring and evaluation and strategic communication so as to facilitate implementation of the Judicial and Legal Reform Strategy and Anti-Corruption Strategy.  The project team started their work in Yerevan a few weeks ago, meeting with Government of Armenia counterparts and colleagues in the EU Delegation.  We are implementing this project in a consortium with Axiom under the leadership of Ecorys and are really looking forward to working together.
