Institute of Public Policy
Speaker: Edgar Vardanyan
From time to time, some portions of the public are challenging the authoritarian systems in different parts of the world. The new era of history is rich with the non-violent for democratic changes and the formal and informal education is a major factor influencing on this trend.
The international experience indicates that most of the foundations of the non-violent are being based on the locations of the education centers and those centers are transforming the ordinary citizens into activists who are struggling for their rights.

The speaker will also analyze the Armenian reality and its informal and formal education institutions.
