Training for young activists: Political Thinking: Test it in February Presidential Elections

Between September 2007 and November 2007, the School President programme was realised for the students of higher grades of the Secondary School #131 in Yerevan (sixteen trainings were organised for a group of fifty students).
Between October 2007 and December 2007, the second part of the project, School for Human Rights and European Integration, was organised. MORE


Throughout the autumn of 2006, the Yerevan-based Analytical Centre on Globalisation and Regional Cooperation, with the support of the Heinrich Boell Foundation, carried out 32 lectures and discussions for 31 Armenian university students on the premises of the State Linguistic University after V.Brusov. That constituted the School for Human Rights and European Integration. The European Neighbourhood Policy was the main leitmotif of these sessions; nevertheless, increasing awareness regarding human rights, activities of international organisations and the ENP Action Plan for Armenia were also discussed.
Together with the experts, students investigated individual phenomena and discussed concrete events precipitated by the ENP Action Plan for Armenia. During the sessions, students increased their knowledge of the EU’s structure and the activities of different European organisations, i.e. OSCE, the Council of Europe and the European Union. The sessions also allowed the students to meet international experts and become familiar with the human rights situation and stance on European integration that other countries adopted. Moreover, students listened to lectures and posed questions to representatives of independent, non-governmental organisations and Armenian think-tanks. This allowed them to hear alternative points of view on several issues and have a first-hand account of the actual work that mentioned civil societal institutions are doing ‘on the ground’. Finally, this programme provided an opportunity to meet and work with other students from different Armenian universities.
