WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SUPPORT FROM THE CITIZENS ON FURTHER COMPILATION OF THE DATABASE

Peace Dialogue NGO’s new website http://safesoldiers.am is now available. It contains database on non-combat fatalities, deceased soldiers and human rights violations recorded in the RA Armed Forces since signing of the cease-fire in 1994 after the Nagorno Kharabagh war.

As of today, the on-line database includes more than 500 death cases. The compilation of the database became possible due to the information received from media and watchdog groups working on human rights protection in the armed forces, from victims’ relatives and successors, as well as from the information received from state bodies (MoD, military investigative service, etc) in response to numerous inquiries addressed to them.

The staff working on the website tried to list the descriptions of the cases, the places, the dates, the causes, the investigative processes initiated in regards to those cases, as well as the following investigative and trial processes and the violations revealed during those processes.    more»

THE PRESIDENT OF PEACE DIALOGUE NGO EDGAR KHACHATRYAN EMPHASIZES THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SOCIETY’S PARTICIPATION IN PEACEFUL RESOLUTION OF CONFLICTS.
number of views: 213

In his interview with "Aravot" daily he mentioned that the society is almost unaware what issues are being discussed around the negotiation table: “The society is also unaware what position its own government has on the discussed issues.”

E. Khachatryan mentioned that, unfortunately, today Armenia does not have a concrete position on the peaceful resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh issue. In addition to that, the society has never been clearly informed about the state policy on very simple and logical questions. “Among such questions are for example, what is the concept of peaceful resolution of the conflict according to our Ministry of Foreign Affairs? What is the role of Armenia in this process and what is the role of NK? About what compromises does the RA president talk in his speeches from higher international platforms?”

“The negotiation process implies certain confidence on your standpoint, clarity and clear expression of your needs. Finally, around the negotiation table the only acceptable language is the language of international law and diplomacy.    more»

For already two weeks Peace Dialogue NGO has been implementing a research within its Safe Soldiers for a Safe Armenia project. The research is aimed at studying the political and civic attitudes and values among young people. Furthermore, according to the project staff, the aim of the research is to not only observe and record the attitudes of young people towards current political processes in Armenia and in the region. It is more interesting to reveal the interconnection between young people’s political or civic perceptions and their attitude towards security, human rights and democracy issues in Armenia.    more»

THE HISTORY-THEATRE WORKSHOP IN TBILISI
number of views: 774

Collective memory gives people a sense of belonging. History helps to explain the world. A shared view of history can motivate people to take action that changes the future. These were the main massages that the organizers intended to pass to the participants of the History-Theatre workshop, held in Tbilisi from 17-24 of November, 2013. The workshop was the last joint activity in the framework of Peace Dialogue’s three year project Let’s See… Let’s Choose… Let’s Change. This year the project’s activities were mainly focused at developing a critical historical consciousness and the understanding among the youth involved in the project that people themselves are actors in history and play the most active role in constructing collective historical memories.    more»
