Here's a new resource for people trying to keep a finger on the pulse of young people in Azerbaijan.
TƏHSİL XƏBƏRLƏRİ is written by students in Azerbaijan. The title means roughly "Education News." There is a "button" to provide an English translation of the site, although the translations are really brief summaries of the articles. Translating is a lot of work! Nonetheless, if you check it out you'll get an idea about what educated young people in Azerbaijan are doing. In my experience, they have a lot of idealistic energy, much of it frustrated by the government.
Even the summaries can give you a flavor of life there. For example:
"Head of press service of Tefekkur University Shirmammad Khanmammadov was arrested while selling forged diploma."
"Students of Chemistry faculty of Azerbaijan State Pedagogical University (ASPU) are forced to bribe."
"Illegal actions are continued at Baku State University (BSU)."
I commend the young people of Azerbaijan for persisting in their efforts to bring greater democracy and honesty to their society!
