Achievements in building pluralistic democracy based on respect for
human rights and rule of law during Armenia's five year membership
in the Council of Europe will be the main theme of the "Armenia and
the Council of Europe: Five Years of Membership" conference to be
held 5 May 2006, at the Armenia Marriott Hotel.

On 25 January 2001, by joining the Council of Europe, an organisation
that promotes democracy, human rights and rule of law continent-wide,
the Republic of Armenia made an important step towards freedom and
democracy. The conference intends to bring together national policy
makers, RA National Assembly deputies, civil society and media as well
as representatives of international community to celebrate the fifth
anniversary of Armenia's membership in the Organisation and exchange
views on future cooperation between the Council of Europe and Armenia.

The conference will be concluded by a panel discussion entitled
"The Many Facets of Cooperation: Armenia's Contribution to Building
European Standards" with participation of Armenian professionals
engaged in the Council of Europe activities regarding Armenia.
