Tatev Hovhannisyan: Eurasia Assistant Editor on openDemocracy’s Tracking the Backlash project

Having a strong background in Oriental Studies, I’m a journalist with 10+ years of professional experience. For a decade, I’ve worked at leading Armenian media outlets – Civilnet and Mediamax, as an Editor.

In March 2020, I joined openDemocracy’s Tracking the Backlash project – a team of feminist investigative journalists who prioritise the voices of people who have been excluded from other media.

Currently, I’m an Assistant Editor in Eurasia who supports the production of ambitious, cross-border investigative journalism and powerful storytelling that challenges the backlash and inspires change.

I’m also developing a network of freelance journalist contacts in the region. Feel free to email me [tatev.hovhannisyan@opendemocracy.net] with tips or ideas for a new Tracking the Backlash investigation.
