RSC STAFF ANALYSIS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN ARMENIA

RSC STAFF ANALYSIS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN ARMENIA

Timed with the 22 February International Day in Support of Victims of Crimes, we are pleased to release the latest in our “RSC Staff Analysis” publication series, with RSC Research Intern Lilit Simonyan tackling the difficult but pressing issue of domestic violence in Armenia. The article, entitled “Armenia: Domestic Violence or Just Family Problems?” offers unique insights into the problem and most urgently, calls for the criminalization of domestic violence in Armenia.

Ms. Simonyan is a Research Intern with the RSC and is a former intern with the U.S. Embassy in Yerevan. She is also an active leader in AEGEE (European Students Forum Association) Yerevan and is a graduate student in the MA Programme on Human Rights and Democratization at the Yerevan State University.
