Research Assistant

EVN Report is an independent, non-profit online weekly magazine. We offer a mix of reporting, analysis and commentary on politics, economy, culture, tech and innovation, the arts, as well as compelling narratives, podcasts and multimedia storytelling.

EVN Report is looking for candidates as research assistants for a project “Strengthening and Promoting Civic Journalism in Armenia” funded by British Embassy. The proposed project will include publishing alternative policy recommendations (White Papers) developed and written by experts in four specific spheres - health, justice, environment and social affairs - through consultations with relevant government bodies. The aim is to open it up to a discussion forum bringing together other experts, opinion makers, thought leaders, EVN Report’s editors and journalists and most importantly, readers to create a space and a platform for readers to be co-creators of engaged, credible journalism and allow them to have a voice in driving policy development. This collaboration envisions bringing about a more informed public that will have a say in matters that concern all layers of society through a new section on EVN Report called Readers’ Forum.

The research assistants (8 total) are expected to provide necessary research for four experts/researchers working to develop the White Papers.

Velvet Revolution: The Moments In-Between

In 2018, the Armenian people were swept up in a nationwide movement that would come to be known as the Velvet Revolution. Photojournalist Eric Grigorian took thousands of photos, documenting and capturing images of ordinary people who came together to achieve the extraordinary. Through his own words, Grigorian tells the story of the revolution and the moments in-between.


Portraits of Memory: Gyumri


This year marks not only the 30th anniversary of the earthquake, but also the 30th anniversary of the start of the Karabakh Movement. Before the Velvet Revolution, EVN Report traveled to Gyumri to talk to the people there about their memories, concerns and dreams for the future. These are the voices of the participants of the 1988 Movement from Gyumri.

Ինտրոսպեկտիվ Հայաստան. Հիշողության դիմանկարներ

Նվիրվում է Ղարաբաղյան շարժման 30-ամյակին

1988-ին սկասած Ղարաբաղյան Շարժումը ինտենսիվ և վիթխարի փոփոխությունների ժամանակաշրջան էր, որն առաջնորդում էր հայ ժողովուրդը: 


When we launched EVN Report on March 16, 2017 in Yerevan, our mission was to be the first reader-supported Armenian publication. But we had to prove to you, our reader, what we were made of. So, for the past year we have written extensively and critically about issues impacting our lives in Armenia and the Diaspora. Our goal was to elevate the conversation, to bring meaning and context to our own unique digital town square. We have also been a platform where the world can take a peek inside our complexities, hardships, accomplishments and victories. If you read something that meant something on EVN Report, then we are asking you to support us so that we maintain our independence and are accountable to you.
