IFES launches the "Engaged Citizen" program to enhance civic education

On January 29, USAID partner International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) signed an agreement with five pilot universities in Armenia to launch the “Engaged Citizen” civic education program. The program was developed under the framework of USAID’s “Strengthening Electoral Processes and Political Accountability” project, which aims to promote broader citizen engagement in elections and political processes. The “Engaged Citizen” program will introduce a modern, interactive course on civic education at universities across Armenia, that builds on global best practices and IFES’ recent successful experience in Ukraine. This course will help enhance the capacities of youth to engage in political life and serve as an impetus to strengthen critical thinking in the Armenian higher education system. IFES is working with Yerevan State University, Yerevan Brusov University of Languages and Social Sciences, Armenian State Economic University, Vanadzor State University, and Shirak State University to introduce the course in the fall of 2020.
