Democratization and human rights

Apr 2015 – Dec 2015 – At the Crossroads: Discourse over Armenia’s European and/Eurasian perspectives

The goal of the project is to fill the lack of information and awareness about perspectives of Armenia’s political and economic development vectors and provide debating skills to participants. Through series of seminars and workshops the project will help regional activist groups to formulate their own judgment about democratic values and economic perspectives of the country.

This project will build on the previous similar initiative successfully implemented in 2014 funded by F. Ebert Foundation thanks to which a dynamic group of young informed activists was formed representing different regions of Armenia. This new project along with new participants, will at some point engage also participants from the previous project thus creating strong synergy and impact of projects funded by the F. Ebert Foundation.
