Hello readers, my name is Gabriel Armas-Cardona, and I am a lawyer focused on public international law and human rights. I started this blog to discuss my experiences, challenges and successes in doing human rights work in Yerevan, Armenia. The blog is an attempt to bring news and much needed analysis about Armenia to an English-speaking audience. Posts range from brief points on current political events, longer posts on systemic human rights issues, and a few more light-hearted posts with pictures from one of my trips around Armenia.
I’m currently working my second fellowship in Armenia. I’m a current international fellow at the Caucasus Research Resource Center. Last year, I completed a fellowship in the Office of the Human Rights Defender of the Republic of Armenia as a participant of Birthright Armenia. My work will be linked to on this blog within the limits of interest and confidentiality.
I am currently seeking permanent employment, with a preference for working in Armenia, another developing country or in New York City. I have experience with issues in human rights, international law, rule of law and elections, and working with victims. I am a 2011 graduate of New York University School of Law, and am admitted to the New York Bar Association. My resume is attached.
