    The urban and rural communities of Armenia are currently experiencing challenging times. This is because the landmark community consolidation reform is in full swing. By 2018, the number of recognised communities in Armenia will go down from 915 to a just a bit over 300.

  • A journalist, and an active citizen of Sisian in southern Armenia, Srbuhi Grigoryan used to report on the news, covering many local government meetings. She got so involved that she decided to run as a local representative in a local council, also known as Avagani. This was the first woman the council in Sisian admitted as a member. Although a few women ran for office, they never used to get elected. Srbuhi wondered whether men and even women would be interested in voting for her.
