Whither Armenia?
Risks and Prospects for the Future
Dr. Alexander Iskandaryan
This event will focus on the genesis and the consequences of the power transition that happened in Armenia just under a year ago. What paved the way for such abrupt changes in Armenia? What are the challenges facing the new elites, and what trends can we expect to see in Armenia's domestic and foreign politics in the coming years?
