15 October 2012, Inside Outside with Richard Giragosian

Richard GiragosianInterview with the founding director of the Yerevan-based Regional Studies Center (RSC) Richard Giragosian, who was in Istanbul for a conference at Kadir Has University. The interview is about Turkey-Armenia relations, the role and influence of civil society, how Davutoglu’s “just memory” was perceived in Armenia and among Armenian diaspora, what concrete steps could be taken to prepare again a rapprochement in the process leading to 2015 and what are the possible scenarios for Karabakh. Giragosian has not lost optimism concerning the bilateral relations and this optimism is based on the continuing efforts of both civil societies to prepare the ground for a rapprochement.
