Gevorg Ter-Gabrielyan’s response to Ara Nedolyan’s review of his book “The Godless Movie Theater” is persented.
“Godless Movie Theater” is a collection of prose written by Gevorg Ter-Gabrielyan in 2012-2017, published in 2018. Ara Nedolyan's review of the collection is presented.
We offer to your attention ARCH researcher Nare Hovhannisyan’s essay, which presents to the Armenian reader John Locke’s famous work, “An Essay Concerning Human Understanding” (1689).
The report of director of Regional Program Political Dialogue South Caucasus Dr. Thomas Schrapel on the German experience of civil society. The report was presented during the ARCH website presentation on March 15, 2019.
The report analyzes the causes, trends and perspectives of the velvet revolution in Armenia.
This analytical text was written by Manvel Sargsyan in 2007-2008, but for obvious political reasons was never published. Meanwhile, the work not only remained relevant, but also became especially up-to-date due to the in-depth explanation of the essence of the criminal-oligarchic system of power, which the Armenian revolution of 2018 opposes. The first part of the work presents a constructive model that describes the structure of power relations operating in Armenia since the beginning of the 2000s. The second part, a chronicle of political events, allows drawing a fairly complete picture of the dynamics of the emergence and consolidation of this system.
The essay covers the transformation of the Armenian diaspora from a nationalist community in exile to a diasporic transnation and offers new conceptual perspectives for the analysis of diaspora elites and institutions.
