Developing tools to perform legislation expertise in terms of human rights and gender equality

Currently, the Republic of Moldova is part to a set of conventions in the field of human rights. Unfortunately, this fact does not represent itself an effective guarantee of human rights, as long as legislation is not harmonized to the rigors of international treaties and to the various international institutions’ recommendations.

Project objective: Developing an efficient tool for checking the compliance of draft laws with international human rights treaties ratified by the Republic of Moldova.

Through the project “Developing tools to perform legislation expertise in terms of human rights and gender equality” it will be developed:

1. The Guide on performing legislation expertise in terms of human rights and gender equality.

2. E-template on performing legislation expertise in terms of human rights and gender equality.

Target group represents: whole society, because of project results will benefit all people, as a result of creating conditions for adopting a concordant legislation with human rights and gender equality exigencies.

Expected results are: an efficient tool for identifying and eliminating legislative and regulatory reasons that favours appearance, perpetuation and increasing situations of human rights violation and gender equality.

Project implementation will directly contribute to create necessary conditions for:

  • Identifying and eliminating sources of legislative and regulatory framework that favours the appearance, continuation or increase of any violation of human rights including gender equality;
  • Ensuring real and permanent monitoring site on the legislative process of civil society in Moldova and representatives of civil society involvement in this process by providing qualified expertise;
  • Creating necessary conditions for informing whole public about draft laws content and discriminatory draft laws mediatisation, by the fact that e-template technical parameters will be designed so as to allow all expertises publication;
  • Improving legal mechanism of protection against discrimination, since the Guide and e-template will oblige the expert to verify a set of elements that have the scope to ensure human rights respecting, non-discrimination, and gender equality.  

Activities:

I. Developing the Guide on performing legislation expertise in terms of human rights and gender equality

E-template algorithm will be designed (by 2 persons who participated to the Guide elaboration) based on the Guide and taking into account the CAPC experience in the field of corruption proofing expertise. The algorithm will represent the base of the e-template developing (designing). 

III. E-template on performing expertise designing
