This paper is based on data collected through fieldwork carried out in Armenia in 2001, part of the baseline data collection for a wider project on non-farm economic activities in Central and Eastern Europe and the CIS countries which covered Romania, Armenia and Georgia. Fieldwork was carried out in three villages, chosen to be as representative as possible of variables affecting Armenian villages, particularly in relation to access to non-farm activities. Economic activity in villages, and factors affecting livelihood strategies, are discussed.
