Models and rules of broadcast and non-broadcast pre-election debates, structure and sponsorship of debates, nationwide polls on debate issues, ideas how Internet can be used to improve debate participation and even series of “to do” checklists for debate sponsors and participants. Such kind of information is now available on Armenian language as well thanks to Internews Armenia.
A book by Ronald A. Faucheux “The Debate Book – Standards and Gui delines for Sponsoring Political Candidates in Congressional, State and Local Elections” was translated and published by Internews for free of charge distribution.
Internews is sure that this book will assist Armenia in understanding a major role of correct political pre-election debates.
The project was sponsored by USAID.
