Media for Informed Civic Engagement

The Media for Informed Civic Engagement (MICE) is a five-year activity that aims to increase citizen access to independent and reliable sources of information about the Government of Armenia’s (GOAM) policies and planned reforms, with special emphasis on USAID-supported reforms in decentralization,

transparency and accountability, and social sector policy.

While specifically focusing on these reforms, the activity will improve the quality of media content and strengthen the media’s capacity to meet professional standards, thus fostering the continued development of an independent media sector.
