Research on “Public defenders and the Needs of the Public Defender’s Office”

The current research was elaborated by the “Protection of Right without Borders” NGO.

The research was conducted on February of 2013, when a part of the amendments of the RA Law on “Advocacy” entered into force. This means, that the reforms and risks of the practice envisaged by the law could not be fully reflected in the outcomes of the research.

The workload, non-sufficient office conditions, transportation and mobility issues, mobile and internet connection insurance of the public defenders, their enumeration, educational needs, the need of an assistant’s engagement in the additional staff, as well as the recommendations directed towards the detection of the needs were presented in the research.
