role of these organizations as an information source on developments of interest
to Armenia. The event was a part of a joint project of YPC and Friedrich Ebert
Foundation, aimed at the development of media self-refutation mechanisms and
principles of journalistic ethics in Armenia. The theme of the last seminar

organizations and the urgency of the problem of maintaining professional norms
