International Training course "Peace from the Grassroots" in Dilijan, Armenia

27 youth workers with tools to empower young people in both EU and Neighbouring Partner Regions.
The youth workers will explore their own understanding of conflict and learn how to establish
interventions based on participation, which can contribute to the transformation of conflicts in which
violence is already taking place.
The UN Security Council approved last December the resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security, to recognize the role of youth in building sustainable peace and to lay out the need for governments and other stakeholders to support young people in this role. This resolution is just one of many example that youth organizations have gained relevance and their responsibility have grown bigger. In this regard, it is crucial for youth organizations to be as effective as possible when running peacebuilding initiatives by establishing cross cutting participatory activities that guarantee and enhance, not only their own, but also other groups and relevant stakeholders participation. Key to this development is to enhance the competences of youth organizations, and thereby the youth workers, to design, plan and implement peacebuilding activities with a special focus on participation. This will help to contribute to the engagement of young people in society building work with focus on sustainability and peace building, which is the very ground on which democracy stands.

Against this background, the training course “Peace from the Grassroots”, aims to provide

Annual survey 2016 - Armenia (factsheets)

This series of factsheets presents selected findings from the 'EU NEIGHBOURS east' Annual Survey 2016 – ARMENIA (1st wave conducted between April and June 2016). The factsheets focus on three main areas of the survey:

The full report can be downloaded at the bottom of the page.
European Union
EU Armenia
Between April and June 2016, annual surveys were carried out across the six Eastern Neighbourhood countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine). The research was conducted within the framework of the EU-funded 'OPEN Neighbourhood - Communicating for a stronger partnership: connecting with citizens across the Eastern Neighbourhood' (EU NEIGHBOURS east) project.
The OPEN Neighbourhood 'EU NEIGHBOURS east’ project aims to increase the understanding of EU support in the Eastern Neighbourhood countries through improved communication. The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the improvement of the public perception of the EU, as well as to a better understanding of European policies and their impact through the regional and bilateral EU support and cooperation programmes in Eastern Neighbourhood countries.
The project will develop information and communication materials, carry out awareness-raising and information campaigns, and assess the perception of the EU and its support through opinion polling and media monitoring.
As part of the opinion polling strategy, the purpose of the annual surveys is to investigate the opinion and the level of information that the citizens of the EaP countries have, in general, about the EU and, in particular, about EU-funded cooperation and development programmes/projects. In order to monitor changes over time, the surveys will be carried out annually for the next 3 years.
