Justice and Human Rights

The Justice and Human Rights Department’s vision of rule of law is built on the solid grounds of a fair, accessible and predictable justice delivery system, which effectively safeguards fundamental human rights.

The Department develops and implements activities in several areas, crucial for the fulfilment of its vision: Human Rights, Access to Justice, and Criminal Justice.


2019 is the first year of a new strategic cycle of the Soros Foundation-Moldova. The activities to be undertaken by the Justice and Human Rights Department fall under an aggregate set of actions, which should be regarded as elements of a complex 4-year strategy Albeit well designed and planned, they might undergo substantial changes, to provide an adequate and swift response to potential social and political changes.
The Department works with a vast array of national institutions, most notably the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Social Protection, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the General Police Inspectorate, the National Legal Aid Council and Ombudsman’s Office. Concurrently, we cooperate with a series of justice and human rights advocacy NGOs, such as the National Paralegal Association of Moldova, the Union for HIV Prevention and Harm Reduction, Promo LEX, and Center for Policy, Initiatives and Research “Platforma”. In addition, we will continue the cooperation we started in 2016 with „Țurcan Cazac” Law firm.
