After an application and assessment process, the program will start with a kick-off workshop in Yerevan in late March 2017, a week before Armenia holds its national elections. We will discuss the participants’ story ideas and possibilities for collaborative research. There will also be sessions on debate, hate speech and polarisation in democratic societies and room to discuss the role of the media around these issues. After the workshop the participants will continue to exchange ideas and feedback and share their research through an online newsroom. The journalists will publish their pieces in their home countries.
