The FINANCIAL -- Human rights protection on internet, internet governance, rule of law in the digital world and the European Court of Human Rights case law in this area was the focus of the course for over 60 law professors from Moldovan universities held in the country’s capital Chisinau last week.

Organised in the framework of the joint EU/Council of Europe Programmatic Cooperation Framework, the course is part of the project aimed at strengthening capacities of national authorities on human rights standards, awareness raising among the private sector, civil society and general public on those standards, said EU/CoE PCF.

The joint EU/CoE PCF aims to provide extensive and substantial expertise on strengthening the capacity of institutions in the six Eastern Partnership countries to implement domestic reforms and bring them closer to Council of Europe and European Union standards in the fields of human rights, democracy and the rule of law, and improve the lives of citizens. The EU’s contribution to the PCF is EUR 30 million, accordin to Euro East.
