CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

Partnership for Open Society Initiative`s assessment of the fundamental freedoms and socio-economic rights safeguards in the draft Amendments to the RA Constitution.

On the Fundamental Rights and Social Safeguards

Proposed under the Draft Amendments to the Constitution

The draft Amendments to the Constitution, which propose around 250 amendments, touch upon fundamental rights and freedoms, as well as safeguards of social and economic rights. The Constitution is essentially the main safeguard of our rights and freedoms, and the objective of its amendments should be to develop and improve the existing standards. However, the analysis of the proposed amendments reveals a different picture.

By enshrining in the Constitution certain fundamental rights and freedoms, which are different from other human and citizen’s rights and freedoms, which everyone has from birth, our state has recognized their supreme value and undertaken to protect them. The recognition of fundamental human rights by the state as a supreme value must be safeguarded by precluding any reduction thereof.
