ACRPC SURROUNDED ITS QUARTER CENTURY
25 years ago in June of 1988, hovering in a nationwide struggle the Armenian Constitutional Right-Protective Centre (ACRPC) was founded. It began as the \\\'\\\'Constitutional group of Kirovakan\\\'\\\' under the system of the \\\'\\\'Union of Constitutional Groups\\\'\\\' located in Yerevan and became one of the efficient structures of the union. The group was initially focused on Human Rights protection and democratization of the constitution and the government.
When it became clear during Armenia\\\'s first independent years, that the new authorities would also violate the human right’s despite their declared noble aims and assurance of sincerity in Liberty Square, the group was firmly registered as a non-political, right-protective organization.
During its quarter century activity ACRPC has implemented more than 80 large and small projects, which makes up about 100,000 direct beneficiaries, and through the indirect beneficiaries, as the independent expert Mr. Rob Watson has mentioned, ACRPC projects’ beneficial influence has spread to 6% of the whole population of Armenia.
Being faithful to his mission of legal culture development, the Strategy of individual’s human rights protection through the Human Rights Education and its main strategic directions (*Armenian Human Rights School, *Human Rights Library Network, *Legal and Constitutional Reforms, *Publications) ACRPC, with its unique culture and consistent principles, continues to pursue its vision: a world living with love and tolerance where law and justice given from Above reign!
Since 2002, ACRPC has been associated with the United Nations Department of Public Information. Since 2007, the NGO has been awarded special consultative status by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). ACRPC is a member of a number of networks: the Conference of NGOs in Consultative Status with the United Nations (CoNGO), Civil Society Partnership Network (CSPN), the “Adult Education and Lifelong Learning Fund” Network and is the coordinator of the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) Armenian coalition.
All events of ACRPC this year will be held under the Jubilee logo.
