About the project

The discussion paper “At the Crossroads” is an invitation to a dialogue about the future of Armenia and the Armenian nation. The authors share their vision of the future, describe their own projects devoted to creating this future and seek to expand the circle of trust.

We invite you to read the manuscript, discuss it with the authors and with each other (THINK TO CONNECT! Section), create projects together that launch productive changes (THINK TO CREATE!), and join to creative activities (THINK TO ACT!).

At the Crossroads

We are united by the understanding that in today’s turbulent world only those will survive who can anticipate the future and are ready to act energetically and consistently.

READERS’ OPINIONS

Andrey Sharonov
“At the Crossroads” is a very serious work that deserves attention, and not only from the Armenian community, although, of course, the target audience of the book is the residents of Armenia and the diaspora. I read it with interest. At some point, it seemed to me that some topics (for example, inheritance and successors) look non-harmonious with the main theme, but then I agreed with this when such topics are described as separate inserts. This does not break the general logic but adds useful information.

I have finally had a chance to read through the Crossroads document, which I found to be impressive in its scope, analytical approach, and not least, its aspirations. The vision of Armenia as a hub nation, re-invigorating a sense of national purpose through engagement in innovative enterprises that serve wider global problem-solving while fueling a sustainable economic engine to drive prosperity, is certainly ambitious and exciting.

READERS’ OPINIONS

Boris Akunin
It was interesting to read “At the Crossroads”. First, the discussion paper is informative, and secondly (and most importantly), its message and motivation are close to me. The text makes a very good impression, with the right combination of restraint and emotionality, objectivity and understandable partiality.

Thank you for including me in the review of this seminal paper, which is a thoughtful, informative, and well-written piece of scholarly work with practical applications. It is a concise yet comprehensive analysis of the journey of the Armenians through the Millenia, in the context of the world events, all of which have helped shape the modern Armenian ethos, with the possibility of a path into a bright future.
