Through the joint initiative of the Friedrich Neumann Foundation and PEN Armenia, a series of events called Sakharov Days was held in Yerevan.
PEN International is a worldwide association of writers, founded in London in 1921 to promote literature and intellectual co-operation among writers everywhere.
Other goals included: to emphasise the role of literature in the development of mutual understanding and world culture; to fight for freedom of expression; and to act as a powerful voice on behalf of writers harassed, imprisoned and sometimes killed for their views.
