Since December 2008 Eurasia Partnership Foundation is implementing “Institutionalizing Freedom of Expression in Armenia as a right enjoyed by the general public and upheld by the State” project. The project is funded by British Embassy in Yerevan and USAID.

As a part of the project a qualitative sociological research on perceptions of Armenian society towards Freedom of Expression (FoE) and Censorship has been carried out in Yerevan and three regions of Armenia, through focus group and in-depth interviews. In particular the research:
• Finds out the perception of the society on FoE, the reasons and ways of restriction/self-restriction of expression, desirable areas and boundaries of FoE.
• Presents the state of censorship/self- censorship and obstacles of FoE in different areas (NGOs, Mass Media, arts, sciences, etc.).
• Presents suggestions for improving the state of FoE in Armenia targeted to different social institutions.

Findings and suggestions reflected in the research are applicable for wide spectrum of professionals, representatives of the government, local and international public and private organizations.
