RSC ASSESSMENT: “ARMENIA 2018: POLITICAL TRANSFORMATION & TRANSITION”

With less than three months to go until Armenia completes its transformation to a parliamentary system, the Regional Studies Center (RSC) released a brief assessment of recent developments entitled, “Armenia 2018: Political Transformation and Transition.”  The assessment looks at the recent developments over the indirect election of a now largely symbolic president and the selection of a new prime minister as the next head of state.  For the latter and more significant issue of the next premier, the RSC analysis offers three likely scenarios.

As an independent think tank based in Armenia, the Regional Studies Center (RSC) conducts a wide range of strategic analysis and objective research, implements a number of educational and policy-related projects, and develops policy initiatives aimed at bolstering political and economic reform and conflict resolution in the broader South Caucasus region.  The RSC is also actively engaged in the public policy process and seeks to serve as a catalyst for democratic reform and sustainable economic development through the empowerment of civil society and by contributing to the formulation of public policy through innovative and objective research, analysis and policy recommendations.
