RSC UN LECTURE FOR VISITING HUNGARIAN GROUP

In a special presentation hosted by Anahit Simonyan, the head of United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Operations in Armenia, RSC Director Richard Giragosian offered a lecture on Armenia for a visiting group of three dozen graduate students and faculty from the Pazmany Peter Catholic University in Budapest, Hungary. Giragosian’s presentation traced Armenia’s course of democratization, economic development and conflict resolution through the period of independence, with an added focus on the broader context of Armenia’s performance in meeting the UN’s set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals. A discussion, with Dr. Balint Kovacs, the head of the visiting Hungarian group, then followed the presentation.
