Activity Details (ID# 33628)  

Show Synopsis    
Title European Code of Ethics and police ethics in Armenia in the context of respect of human rights during police work  
Description In 2010 we conducted a thematic seminar for high ranking officers on the same topics. This year, we were aiming on middle ranking officers. The seminar was held within the Joint Programme Reinforcing the fight against ill-treatment and impunity.

The seminar also related to the Armenian police reform.

The agenda was divided in 4 components:
1. European Standards on human rights (ECHR and ECPE) and policing.
2. Policing demonstrations
3. Arrest and detention
4. Community policing

For each component the experts (Mariana Chicu and Friedrich Schwindt) explained the European standards and their practical application for policing. In this way, the standards and case law were directly related to daily police work.
