“A New Way of Thinking”

Armenian youth leader Arthur Ghazaryan has launched a newspaper for young people in a northeastern town of the former Soviet state, International Journalists’ Network reports. Ghazaryan also plans to start a youth radio station in Armenia, a country where press freedom remains tenuous. “Right now a new generation is getting educated abroad, and they are coming back to Armenia, and they are bringing a new way of thinking about journalism … more European, more American, more democratic,” said Ghazaryan. “I’m optimistic that everything will change.”
