American University of Armenia will host the event. The workshop is organized in the framework of the Book Platform Project, and is supported by the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme of the European Union.

Aim of the workshop:
  • to provide practical knowledge on the various aspects of the rights of writers and translators, ranging from ones related to legal and contractual issues (copyrights, remuneration) to social ones (freedom of speech, working conditions, visibility)
  • to provide a platform for discussion and exchange within Armenian literary and translators' community, and with colleagues from the European Union as well as to give examples of international practices
Ultimately, the workshop aims at empowering and motivating writers and translators for collective actions for improved relations with publishers, state and the wider audiences.
