ARMENIA-TURKEY NORMALIZATION: “LOOKING BACK, LEANING FORWARD”

ARMENIA-TURKEY NORMALIZATION: “LOOKING BACK, LEANING FORWARD”

RSC Senor Analyst David Shahnazaryan and RSC Director Richard Giragosian participated in a seminar on Armenia-Turkey “normalization” organized by the Civic Consent NGO on 8 October. Shahnazaryan’s presentation focused on the broader geopolitical context of Armenia-Turkey, while Giragosian’s presentation, entitled “Armenia-Turkey normalization: Looking back, leaning forward,” assessed the key issues of defining the normalization process, defending the process of engagement and devising a strategy for re-engagement between Armenia and Turkey (Giragosian’s presentation notes are attached).
