Who’s Paying Attention to What? (CRRC Report)

This report examines media bias as it relates to international news coverage and more specifically the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. The report gathers data from existing sources and supplements it with that from newly carried out focus groups in Yerevan and Baku to add depth and clarity to what already exists. The report finds that in the capital cities of both countries, there is generally a high demand for an independent and unbiased media. However, in the case of Nagorno Karabakh conflict, residents of Yerevan and Baku hold conflicting views on media freedom and consider that unbiased reporting on the conflict is problematic.
