Since September 2017 the CI has been implementing the project “Developing investigative and analytical journalism in Karabakh.”
The project is aimed to boost investigative and analytical reporting in Karabakh while also creating an English-language source of insights into Karabakh at which the trainees practiced their skills.
In the framework of the project a series of workshops were held by the journalist Mark Grigoryan, followed by production of 9 articles by the participants for an online analytical publication in English. Based on material that the trainees gathered in various regions of Nagorno-Karabakh, the stories were written by trainees under the guidance of Mark Grigoryan and edited by CI staff. They are available on the project's blog, www.reporting.am. The stories reveal the unknown sides of life in Nagorno-Karabakh, for example, how families integrate amusing traditions into modern lifestyles, how communities preserve their dialects, and how the Internet affects rural lifestyles.
At the final stage of the project, abridged versions of the stories will be published in a booklet that will be disseminated among hotels and travel agencies in Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia.
