The CPLR is not a classic human rights organization, but it is the value of human rights that determines the nature and purpose of the organization.
The Constitution of Ukraine, adopted in 1996, established high standards of human rights, the primacy of international law over national law, and established democratic institutions. However, it was clear that the adoption of the Constitution is only the first step, and its implementation requires a number of reforms in the political and legal sphere.
Since its inception and until now, the CPLR has focused on developing and facilitating reforms that will ensure democracy and the rule of law in Ukraine and lead our country to EU membership in the future.
According to the Copenhagen criteria, a state that aspires to be part of the European political community must ensure the stability of institutions that guarantee democracy, the rule of law, respect for human rights and the protection of minority rights.
