  • Start date: 1 March 2019
  • End date: 1 March 2020

Initiative summary:

Set up in April 2018, InfoCom is Armenia’s first online media aggregator. This volunteer-led project came to the fore during Armenia’s Velvet Revolution, when it played an important role of keeping the population up to date through its Telegram channel. EED provides first-time donor support to InfoCom so that it can continue to promote media literacy, address disinformation and inform citizens about developments in Armenia. InfoCom is establishing an online registry of public figures and institutions.
