About the project

The discussion paper “At the Crossroads” is an invitation to a dialogue about the future of Armenia and the Armenian nation. The authors share their vision of the future, describe their own projects devoted to creating this future and seek to expand the circle of trust.

At the Crossroads

We are united by the understanding that in today’s turbulent world only those will survive who can anticipate the future and are ready to act energetically and consistently.

READERS’ OPINIONS

Narine Abgaryan
Thank you to the authors for their tactfulness: they managed to identify the problems of the Armenian nation without offending its dignity. The state of society, the crisis of national identity, the issues of elites are recognized honestly and consistently. We need to learn to voice our misconceptions, failings and shortcomings. The discussion paper “At the Crossroads” is a huge step in this direction.

I have read the book with great interest. My review will be focused on the challenges related to the diaspora, science and education. However, I would like to start by discussing a global challenge – and to overcome this challenge is the highest priority for Armenia.

The work done by the team of authors deserves great admiration. Moreover, as of today, this is the only elaborated project I know of that considers Armenia and the Armenians’ civilizational models of development as a global phenomenon.

READERS’ OPINIONS

Vahagn Vardanyan, PhD
The book is a successful attempt to address the development perspectives of Armenia, following the path the Armenian people have passed despite standing at the edge of survival many times in history. The authors raise thought-provoking aspects of Armenia’s current and future development by igniting the flame of interest in the areas of national development, economic prospects, and identity formation the work is centred around. As it is stressed, probably the key attribute, which has led to the survival of the Armenians and, as such, has provided the nation with an opportunity to revive again and again, is its ability to create and maintain an ethnic-religious path, not assimilated with other Christians.
