As states in Armenia's political neighborhoods develop new strategic partnerships and the role of superpowers, particularly the US, evolves, what is the impact on Armenia? How should Armenia position itself in these increasingly turbulent times?

Throughout much of the 20th century, Armenia was tucked in geopolitically as a Soviet Republic. Currently, with heightened geopolitical competition and great power rivalry between the U.S. and China in the backdrop, shifting global geopolitics pose a range of regional implications for Armenia. In particular, the U.S. pull-out from Afghanistan is set to reshuffle and challenge state governance in South Asia and the Middle East, with a range of implications for Russian and Turkish foreign policies.
