EIU organized in collaboration with NAASR/Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Lecture Series on Contemporary Armenian Issues and Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Module "EU, Security and Fundamental Rights" (EUSecJuris), a two-day Summer Institute on the topic of Russia-Ukraine: War, Statecraft, and Shifting Geopolitics in Eurasia.
Join Dr. Irina Ghaplanyan, author of Post-Soviet Armenia: the New National Elite and the New National Narrative, for a discussion about leadership, cynicism, and priorities. This is the third program in the What’s Next series of discussions on the post-war Armenian Reality.
Academics and advocates each contribute to the effort to promoting the truth about Armenian history as well as present day issues. Each brings a set of strengths and limitations, each speaks to particular (if overlapping) constituencies, and each faces the challenge of being proactive rather than merely reactive when it comes to facing aggressive and unending denial and distortion.
Join a discussion of Conflict, Displacement and COVID-19 on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on regions affected by war, conflict, and displacement in the Middle East, Africa, and the South Caucasus. The speakers will explore the issue from a historical, human rights, and public health perspective.
