ARMENIA IN THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA AND AN ASSESSMENT

The Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) Armenia and the American University of Armenia (AUA) are co-hosting a lecture series dedicated to the centenary of the First Armenian Republic.

As the small Armenian state expanded to the prewar borders of so-called “Russian Armenia” and planned for the realization of the exalted slogan of “Free, Independent, United Armenia,”Armenian diplomats and Armenophile groups were striving on five continents to gain support for the Republic. The response of the Great Powers was critical in that endeavor, and it was a question of whether they would commit the resources necessary to honor their wartime pledges regarding the future of the Armenian people. The collapse of the First Armenian Republic in December 1920 gave the answer to that question. As the Republic passed into history, strongly divergent views became manifest regarding its actual significance. In this centennial year, what might be a realistic appraisal? More here.

CREATING THE REPUBLIC’S INFRASTRUCTURE

The Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) Armenia and the American University of Armenia (AUA) are co-hosting a lecture series dedicated to the centenary of the First Armenian Republic.
Amid difficulties in several minority-populated enclaves and constant hostilities along the borders, the Armenian government attempted to create the framework of a democratic republic.

This lecture and discussion will focus on the measures taken to lay the foundations of a republican form of government, while also dealing with internal tensions, not only among the several Armenian political parties, but also within the dominant party Dashnaktsutiun, The role of the Diaspora also came into play, as Armenian partisanship, regionalism, and dualism threatened the future of the Republic and of the Armenian people itself. But by 1920, significant progress had been made and there were signs of hope, both domestically and internationally. More here.
