Civil society cannot exist apart from independent and strong media. Internews Media Support NGO’s activities proceed from this belief. Internews promotes freedom of expression and open media. Towards this end, Internews organizes training courses for established and emerging journalists, promotes media literacy, advocates for improved media legislation and protects journalists’ rights. The NGO develops multimedia production on human rights, European integration, civic conflict, migration, elections, national minorities, gender and many other issues for a wide range of target audiences.
For the past 2 years Internews has been actively promoting media literacy at schools: a new handbook has been developed that is being distributed and tested in schools.
Internews has been working in Armenia since December 1995. The Media Support Internews NGO was registered in 1996. The NGO is a founder and member of Internews International Association.
