Yerevan/Mediamax/. Armenia is a member of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and has recently signed the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA) with the European Union (EU).
Armenian media often feature stories about both institutions, which is why from now on Mediamax’s MaxMonitor media monitoring, analysis and measurement platform will report about the Armenian media coverage of the EAEU and the EU. Photo: Mediamax Photo: Mediamax
The monitoring of 130 news websites during February 2018 showed that the EU was mentioned almost twice as much as the EAEU.
The presented data refers only to the number of mentions.
MaxMonitor specialists separately analyze publications of 13 news media websites (168.am, 1in.am, A1plus.am, Aravot.am, Armenpress.am, Armlur.am, Blognews.am, Hraparak.am, Lragir.am, Mediamax.am, News.am, Panorama.am, Tert.am), which makes it possible to map the mentions with positive, neutral, and negative undertones.
