La mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure a-t-elle été évaluée ?: 
Oui
Si oui, quelles sont les principales conclusions/recommandations ?: 

Due to the work done over the past four years, tangible results have been recorded in terms of revitalisation of cultural life, proportionate development of the sectors of contemporary arts (cinema/audiovisual arts, theatre arts, visual arts, music, dance, cultural education), improvement of the activities of individual creators and creative groups, identification of the potential of young creators and promotion of activities and awareness-raising of Armenian contemporary arts in the republic, as well as expansion of international partnerships and internationalisation of Armenian contemporary arts.
Alongside this progress, nevertheless, the imperfection of the legal-contractual field remains a major issue, and as a result, this does not clearly ensure the legal relations between the State and creators.

Preservation and awareness-raising of moveable culture heritage of our country is one of the most important domains of the state cultural policy. Establishing electronic information database of cultural values (Armenian treasury) which has launched upon Decision of the Government of the Republic of Armenia No 1058-N of 11 September 2014 "On approving the procedure for establishing electronic information database of cultural values and the list of organisations providing information to the database" is aimed at the solution of this issue. It is aimed at integrating in a unified format in a single domain moveable cultural heritage of the Republic of Armenia and making it accessible both for the general public and the scientists-researchers studying that wealth. Integrated digitised data on museum, archive and handwritten and printed cultural values of both state storages (museums, libraries, archive) and non-state collections (upon the consent of the owners) are included in the database. The database is aimed at further including Armenian moveable cultural values available in different structures of the world, numerous institutions of the Armenian communities. All this will provide an opportunity to widely raise awareness of the cultural heritage of our country both in Armenia and abroad.   The database also contributes to carrying out the process of preserving the values more effectively, monitoring the movement thereof, preventing illegal export and trade of the values, preventing illegal transfer of the right of ownership thereto. 41 organisations under state and community subordination have currently joined the database. Data on around 156 586 cultural values are entered into the database and approved. Activities on uploading information to the database have launched in January 2016. The first stage of the process is envisaged to finish in 2020. “Electronic Union Catalogue of Armenian Libraries” Since 2001, the National Library of Armenia has been carrying out activities on establishing an Electronic Union Catalogue of largest Armenian Libraries. Activities on establishing a Union Catalogue of Libraries are being carried out through “Alef” software of "Ex Libris Group” Israeli company. The Unified Electronic Bibliographic Union Catalogue of Libraries is available at the following link: http://armunicat.am:8991/F. Starting from 2017, “Koha” software accepted by the international library community has launched. Armenian largest public, marz [regional] and academic libraries have joined the software. It also allows to provide electronic services to readers. The system allows to conduct multilingual card-indexing. The system also allows to create a number of guiding databases of "Reputable commentaries", "Geographical names", "Organisation names", "Subject headings", which facilitate searches and make their results more perfect. In 2018-2019, 20 live actions, 10 animations and 22 documentaries were produced. Digitisation and preservation of 18 films was ensured through the project “Cinema-photo-phono collections preservation service”.   In 2018, in close cooperation with Polish “Fixafilm” company, "Hamo Bek-Nazarov: Classics of Armenian films" programme was launched, within the framework of which Armenian film heritage was digitised and restored. In 2019, “Hakob Hovnatanyan” film revived by Sergei Parajanov and digitised was screened within the framework of the Rotterdam’s “The Temple of Cinema” project. Armenian state philharmonic concert-courses with the application of new technologies were broadcast online which had 3000 followers from regions and the Diaspora. The National Аcademic Тheatre of Opera and Ballet named after Alexander Spendiaryan performed 3-D projections of G.

The programme “Subscription System” enables around 380.000 pupils and teachers, regardless of social status, place of residence and access to cultural institutions, to participate in the cultural event, by ensuring for schoolchildren the minimum opportunity to exercise the right to cultural education, simultaneously providing the cultural institutions with the opportunity to have more visitors and compete with other cultural centres on equal footing to have more visitors. In 2019, under the subscription programme 116037 pupils and 7121 teachers visited museums, 2546 pupils and teachers visited concert halls, and 2546 pupils and 154 teachers visited theatre and concert centres.

They had the opportunity to participate for free in the seminar-lectures on the topics “The history of theatre”, “The art of acting”, “Stage direction”, “Engagement of other types of the art in the theatre”, “Organisation of theatrical business”, which were conducted by the best specialists of the field: Henrik Hovhannisyan, theatrologist, corresponding member of the National Academy of Science of the Republic of Armenia, Merited Artists of the Republic of Armenia Ruben Babayan, Nelli Kheranyan, Davit Hakobyan, People’s Artist of the Republic of Armenia Armen Elbakyan and other famous theatrologists and other cultural figures. The five-day lectures were also accompanied by seeing performances. The above-mentioned programmes were included in the long-range programmes of the Ministry as effective projects. OPERATIVE STRATEGY OF UNESCO ABOUT YOUTH Programmes for promoting young creatives and creative groups are annually extended, by establishing a relevant platform for their self-manifestation, improving professional skills, providing favourable conditions for development of their creativity, which is conditioned by competitions held in different fields of art, festivals, shows, awards, organising and participation in master classes in reputable Armenian and foreign studios, tours, performances and designated programmes. International and Republican competition-festivals held in the field of music each year — 26 (international — 6, Republican — 20) in 2016-2019, provide opportunity to creatives and groups to appear before the public and professional commissions on equal footing. The participation in such projects provides young people with opportunity to enter into professional creative field. In the past four years “Debut” Young Armenian Composers Festival, “Renaissance” International Competition-Festival for Musicians in Gyumri, Armenian Song Competition-Festival by “Zvartnots Renaissance” Foundation, Republican Competition of Performing Arts of Chamber Ensembles, Republican Competition for Young Accompanists named after Hegine Ter-Ghevondyan, Republican Competition for Soloists (classical singing). The best young musicians having participated in the competitions held in the Republic joined the creative staff of not only national, but also foreign leading opera houses and orcheatra. In the past four years, the Aram Khachaturian International Competition established since 2003 is held, as is the tradition of the competition, in Yerevan on 6-14 July each year. The competition is aimed at identifying talented young musicians in four professions (piano, violin, cello, conductorship). By the unanimous decision of the World Fenderation of International Music Competitions, in 2017 another profession — vocal, is added to the Khachaturian International Competition. The Board of Trustees of the Competition is comprised of world-famous figures, such as Prof. Jonathan Freeman-Antwood, Konstantin Orbelyan, Prof. Reinhart von Gutzeit, Pavel Kogan, Elżbieta Penderecka, John Fisher, Rezo Kiknadze, Mark Zilberquit and others. The geography of participants is quite broad: the competition hosts young musicians from the CIS countries, the USA, Mexico, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Great Britain, China and many other countries. In the reporting period, 93 musicians (piano — 25, cello — 16, vocal — 38, conductorship — 14) participated in the competition. Over the years, the leading specialists of the field — Grigori Zhislin (Great Britian), Jean Ter-Merkerian (France), Zakhar Bron (Germany), Vladimir Landsman (Canada), Jasper Parrott (Great Britain), Chun Pan (China), Boris Kushnir (Austria), Sergey Kravchenko (Russia), Alexander Sokolov (Russia), Svetlanna Navasardyan (Armenia), Isabel Bayrakdarian (Canada), Meehae Ryo (Korea) and others, have joined the composition of the jury. Such names already ensure the impartiality of the competition and serve as a guarantee of high reputation and good name. Due to international reputation growing every year, the competition has been included in the composition of the World Federation of International Music Competitions (WFIMC), constituting a part of big and prestigious family, to which world-famous competitions have joined, such as the International Chaykovski Competition, the Queen Elizabeth Competition (Brussels) and Montreal International Competition. In 2016, a concert titled “Generation of Independence”, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of independence of the Republic of Armenia was held. This programme was unprecedent by its volume and coverage: 700 minor and teen musicians at the age of 7-20 gathered, creating the orchestra and chorus named “Generation of Independece”. Teens and young people having arrived from different places had the opportunity to be part of this large-scale programme, appear before the world and present the Armenian cultural potential. All the members of the created orchestra and chorus were born in the period of independence. They were born, received education in the years of independence and presented the achievements of independence. This project was also an attempt to find the composers in different, even in the furthest corners of Armenia and Artsakh and give them opportunity for self-manifestation. In 2016, the Young Artists Opera Programme was created at A. Spendaryan National Opera and Ballet Academic Theatre. To date, more than 25 gifted young people have been directly involved in the programme and they have won both on Armenian and international prestigious stages (prize of the President of the Republic of Armenia, International Hans Gabor Belvedere Competition, “Big Opera” International Competition-TV show, Delphic Games of the CIS countries, Minsk International Christmas, Pyongyang International Competition, Aram Khachaturian International Competition for Vocalists, Vyatskoye International Compeitition, Klaudia Taev Competition, Tenor Viñas International Competition, Gohar Gasparyan Pan-Armenian Solo Singing Competition, etc.) The soloists of the Programme have participated in master classes in Germany, Russia, Estonia, Italy, Romania and other countries.   The aim of the programme is the identification of talented young opera artists, creation of a new generation of competitive singers in compliance with international standards, ensuring of smooth succession of generations at A.

The established legal and contractual basis allows to expand the geography of cooperation, create preferential conditions for theatre and concert organisations, individual creatives, as well as create prerequisites for attracting additional funds from foreign countries. At the same time, divergence in interpretation of the provisions of the Convention and the low level of public awareness pose obstacles to the comprehensive cooperation. In this context, we recommend carrying out works for raising public awareness.

In the reporting period, consistent works have been carried out to value and appreciate culture as sustainable development potential. The role of culture in economic stability, preservation of national identity, formation of the civil society and social capital in the country, preservation of peace, cultural diversity is studied. The Government Programme of the Republic of Armenia which includes provisions concerning the economy, urban development, healthcare, nature protection, culture and other sectors, and is aimed at the development of tax policy and administration, institutional modernisation and development of infrastructures of the country. The success of implementation of the cultural policy firstly depends on the principle of state budgeting. The financing of the cultural sector is carried out on the basis of programme budgeting, the priority areas of which derive from laws of the Republic of Armenia in force, decisions of the Government of the Republic of Armenia, as well as the system of measures designated by the sustainable development programme. The whole chain of “drafting — planning — budgeting” of those policies is implemented through triennial medium-term state expenditure frameworks, in the elaboration, financing, organisation, monitoring of which the civil society representatives in the composition of sectoral professional boards of the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of the Republic of Armenia are engaged. In the field of culture the revenues geared down to the potential of economic growth are the revenues received from cultural services rendered to the public that mostly generate from the sales of tickets to treatre goers, concert goers and to exhibition visitors, lease of halls, premises, bailment of drawings, bibliographic and indexing services, sales of books, newspapers, etc. From the point of view of building the capacities of national minorities and human capital, ensuring their education, importance is attached also to many non-governmental organisations and cultural centres of national minorities operating in the Republic of Armenia, the aim of which is to nurture national consciousness, preserve and develop the mother tongue, literature, history and culture. Inclusive creative measures and targeted educational programmes for full-fledged integration of vulnerable groups into the cultural life, providing conditions for their further creative development and progress, creating self-manifestation opportunities, as well as building a climate of tolerance in the public are implemented in the sector.

For the Government of the Republic of Armenia to promote the import of products and services (including cultural), the Commission for Coordination of Charity Programmes operates in Armenia, which implements the state policy in the sector of humanitarian aid and charity. In the context of the policy for ensuring sustainable economic growth in the Republic of Armenia, the development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is called to ensure the stability of the economic growth of the country, giving the economy an innovative direction and flexibility. Each year, the Government of the Republic of Armenia discusses and adopts a programme for supporting small and medium enterprises, the development and implementation of which is based on the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On state support for small and medium enterprises”. The programmes are based on fundamental principles of economic policy adopted by the Government of the Republic of Armenia and contribute to the economic development of the country, especially its remote and borderline settlements, and the overcoming of disproportions. In this regard, the SME, with its features and development opportunities, has a significant impact on the economic development of the country, in general, and in particular, on the culture sector, where 95% of products and services are provided by the SMEs of the field. The Government of Armenia encourages the circulation of materials of cultural nature, which significantly increases the level of ensuring and disseminating cultural diversity in the country. In 2010, Armenia acceded to the Florence Agreement on the Importation of Educational, Scientific and Cultural Materials and the Nairobi Protocol to that Agreement, which contribute the free distribution of books, cultural, educational and scientific materials, access to customs and administrative processes related to the importation of such materials, as well as their free circulation. The application of the Agreement in Armenia has created favourable conditions for the establishment and awareness-raising of the cultural expressions.

In 2015-2019, the Government of the Republic of Armenia, has set — as priorities in the culture sector for upcoming years — a task to increase the preservation of cultural foundations of the society, the overcoming of provincialism, the expansion of the world view of citizens, ensuring access to national and global cultural resources for the population. The main domains in the culture sector have been set as follows: the proportionate development of culture, the preservation of cultural heritage and the development of modern infrastructures of art, the promotion of cultural processes, the application of information technologies and the cultural education. The activities of cultural institutions and organisations are aimed at ensuring equal rights and opportunities for women and men to freely participate in [cultural] life, to enjoy the benefits of their own creation, and to freely interact with cultural values. Within the framework of improving the situation of women in the Republic of Armenia and increasing their role in the society, a task is set to cover the ideas of gender equality through culture and mass media, to promote the formation of ideals of a woman and a man and to increase the prestige of women in the public consciousness. From the point of view of gender expression, importance is attached to “KIN” [“A Woman”] (51 films from 16 countries) and "Sose" (more than 172 films from 39 countries participated) international film festivals.

Challenges and Achievements

Décrivez les principaux résultats atteints dans la mise en œuvre de la Convention (au moins une réalisation majeure dans un des quatre objectifs): 
- In the field of aesthetic education of future generations, formation of their artistic taste, "perception" of culture, a significant role has been assigned to the inclusion of knowledge on cultural diversity in the education system, for the development of which a number of fundamental documents and targeted programmes have been developed. As a result, the involvement of all age and social groups in the education system has been ensured, which has brought about a qualitative change in the lives of the latter. - Intercultural dialogue has been ensured through the targeted programmes being implemented in Armenia — the Armenian society has an opportunity to get acquainted with the culture, history and traditions of different countries, different manifestations of contemporary arts and at the same time to present reciprocally its own rich material and intangible cultural heritage. In the course of these years, translation has been the best mode of expression for the interaction with other cultures. - The involvement of individuals being members of the culture of the given country of the Armenian Diaspora in the process of ensuring cultural diversity has been ensured. - Due to the establishment of direct connections between international agreements, operational programmes and institutions, the geography of cooperation has been expanded, the number of programmes being implemented on a reciprocal basis has increased, as well as the format of programmes has been amended and updated.
Décrivez les principaux défis rencontrés dans la mise en œuvre de la Convention et les principales solutions trouvées ou envisagées pour les surmonter: 
- The challenges facing the Diaspora are varied and numerous. From the point of view of the implementation of the Convention, they are mainly the following: preservation of cultural identity, dissemination and awareness-raising of national culture, recording of the cultural potential of the Diaspora, inventory of cultural heritage, presentation of Armenian products and famous cultural figures in the Diaspora and vice versa, lack of awareness about the programmes and measures being implemented within the framework of not only the Homeland-Diaspora, but also the Diaspora-Diaspora cultural cooperation, the need for creating electronic platforms fully presenting that information, etc., which imply human, organisational, technical and financial contributions. - As a result of the processes of global geopolitics, a distortion of the expressions of different cultures takes place, even up to assimilation. This challenge may endanger cultural diversity. - Insufficient level of public awareness of the Convention, both at national and international levels, causes differing and often contradictory interpretations of the Articles of the Convention. Describe the steps planned in the next four years to further implement the Convention and the priority areas identified for future policy action based on the conclusions of the current reporting process:
Décrivez les étapes prévues pour les quatre prochaines années afin de poursuivre la mise en œuvre de la Convention et les domaines prioritaires de l’action politiques identifies sur la base des conclusions de ce rapport périodique: 
- Raise the level of public awareness of the provisions of the Convention and the possibilities provided thereby, - Develop strategies and/or action plans based on the provisions of the Convention that will enable the representatives of the civil society and the creative industry, as well as all age and social groups to get thoroughly involved in cultural processes, including the education system. Based on the fact that the function of carrying out activities with the Diaspora in the culture sector has been transferred to the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of the Armenia since the establishment of the Office of the High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs of the Republic of Armenia — the planning of the steps for the upcoming four years ensuring the implementation of the Convention is within the scope of this Ministry, with regard to the part concerning the Diaspora — in cooperation with the Office of the High Commissioner.
