A national report on Armenia’s youth that will include the results of a comprehensive study on the development of state policy on youth will be published in December 2011. The report will address issues of concern to 18–30 year-olds, said RA Deputy Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Arsen Karamyan (alternative spelling Qaramyan), speaking at the Armenian government’s press center today.
According to Karamyan, an attempt at publishing a similar report in 2006–2007 was successful.
“We all understand that essential changes have taken place during a five-year period in our surrounding environment and naturally, issues concerning youth have been subject to some transformation,” he said.
As reported by the official Government of Armenia website, discussed during the press conference were three areas which will be studied: organizing good quality and accessible education, the youth employment problem, and issues related to health and reproduction in particular.
The nationwide studies will begin in May and end in October. The report will be published in Armenian in the second half of December, and in English in January–February 2012.
