On April 25, 2021, Nikol Pashinyan formally tendered his resignation as Prime Minister and an-nounced that he would seek re-election through an early parliamentary election. It was almost 3 years to the day after the dramatic resignation of Serge Sargsyan which catapulted Pashinyan to power in the culmination of the Velvet Revolution. In the wake of the catastrophic 44-day war of fall 2020 and mounting political tensions, much is at stake in the June 20 elections.

Join us for a discussion with three distinguished experts who will analyze how we got here, what may lie ahead, and what it means for Armenian statehood.
