AWARENESS RAISING MECHANISM FOR THE EFFECTIVE PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE ARMENIAN ARMED FORCES.
number of views: 170

In July of 2015 Peace Dialogue launched its one-year project called Awareness Raising Mechanism for the Effective Protection of Human Rights in the Armenian Armed Forces. The project is aimed at raising awareness among local and international communities about the human rights situation in the Republic of Armenia (RA) Armed Forces and mobilizing them to increase public demand for transparency, accountability, and greater respect for human rights in the military.

In the framework of the project, Peace Dialogue will present and promote the website www.safesoldiers.am to citizens living in different regions of Armenia (Lori, Tavush, Vayots Dzor, Ararat, and Syunik regions) in order to raise public awareness of problems in the military. Visitors to the website will be able to anonymously contribute to the database by posting information or uploading photos or other materials about non-combat fatality cases, which happened in the Army. In addition, the project team will urge visitors to report about any other human rights violations in the army that have not been recorded on the website. The website focuses on the period after Armenia and Azerbaijan reached a ceasefire in 1994. Such materials will be carefully reviewed and verified before being posted.    more»

YELENA, YEHUDA AND “PEACE FIGHTERS”
number of views: 299

Even if you follow the world news every day, it is possible that you have never heard about Elena, Yehuda or the “Peace Fighters”. Normally the media ignores these people or the stories of such people; instead they prefer to put articles illustrated with glamorous photos of politicians and movie stars in their media outlets.

Very few know that after the civil war in Macedonia, an OSCE Office worker named Elena, whose father is Muslim and mother is Christian, had for many years been the only one who managed to bring together Muslim Albanians and Christian Macedonians at a negotiation table.    more»

LEARNING FROM EXPERIENCE
number of views: 386

“After our workshop when I look back I see so many things that I have failed to do or missed in my work before. I understand now that this workshop experience is colossal. We discovered a lot of things about ourselves, many things we would never have noticed. Before coming here, I thought we were going to merely discuss the past, however now it is clear that this topic is closely connected with the future also: it will really help us avoid mistakes in the future, which I really did not expect.”- These are the impressions of Roman, one of the Systemization of experience workshop participants representing Russian Federation.
