Tea Party at the Caucasus Institute

Civilizational and Political Choices

The Caucasus Institute invites students and young scholars under the age of 30 to take part in an informal discussion in Tea Party format.
The discussion will be about the civilizational and political choices Armenia had to make in the course of its history, those it has to make in the 21st century (East-West dichotomy), and potential conflicts such choices may provoke.
The working language of the discussion is Russian (participants can speak Armenian but need to understand Russian).
To attend, please reach us by email or phone by November 22 stating your name, age and a few words about your work and education. The number of seats is limited.
