Azerbaijan End-of-Term Report 2012-2015 – For Public Comment
In 2017, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the End of Term report for Azerbaijan’s first action plan. The report covers the development and first year of implementation of the action plan July 2012 through December 2015.
In Azerbaijan, findings from the IRM staff under the supervision of the International Experts’ Panel (IEP), are summarized below:
“During the course of Azerbaijan’s first action plan, the ability of civil society to work in the country deteriorated due to restrictive government legislation and actions. Few of the OGP commitments significantly opened government, and their potential impact was further weakened by the prevailing operating environment that limits civil society participation.”
The version of the report for public comment is available . The two-week public comment period will begin once the report is available in the administrative language.
