Abstract

This paper presents and discusses the results of the first self-reported juvenile delinquency survey ever conducted in the Republic of Armenia. The project has been made possible, thanks to a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation awarded to the University of Lausanne. The survey research was carried out in the framework of ISRD-2 using the standard research technique, which makes the results comparable to the results of other countries participating in ISRD-2.
