Assistance to the Constitutional Chamber of the Kyrgyz Republic

11/11/2014 - 12/11/2014

Kyrgyzstan – a workshop on media awareness and speaking in public will take place in Bishkek on 11-12 November. This is a training session for judges and relevant staff of the Constitutional Chamber of the Kyrgyz Republic with the objective of teaching them new techniques of dealing with media. The judges will learn how to ensure they get their key message across, how to get the interest of journalists and to avoid using jargon. The participants will have a chance to practice mock-up press conference, TV and radio interview and to get a feedback on their performance from an experienced trainer.

This event is organised jointly with the UNDP office in Bishkek within the projects aimed at supporting the Constitutional Chamber of the Kyrgyz Republic with funding provided by the European Union.

Covid-19 pandemic -
Emergency powers -
 What standards?


During the current Covid-19 pandemic, national governments are taking exceptional measures to slow down the spread of the virus. On numerous occasions, the Venice Commission examined the limits of such emergency powers. The Commission has consistently underlined that State security and public safety can only be effectively guaranteed in a democracy which fully respects the rule of law. Even in genuine cases of emergency situations, the rule of law must prevail.
