The Association of Constitutional Justice of the Countries of the Baltic and Black Sea Regions (BBCJ) was established in 2015 on the initiative of the Constitutional Court of Moldova and the Constitutional Court of Lithuania. It also includes two other members – Constitutional Courts of Georgia and Ukraine and it is open for participation by the constitutional courts and equivalent institutions of other EU and its Eastern Partnership countries of the Baltic and Black Sea Regions.

The Association aims at promoting the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms, as well as the independence of constitutional courts, implementing rule of law principles, and enhancing the exchange of experience between its members. The Constitutional Court of Moldova holds the presidency of BBCJ in the current year, as the state initiating the Declaration on the Establishment of BBCJ.
