The first presentation was made by IPSC Research Analyst PHD in Sociology Samvel Manukyan and was dedicated to migration in Armenia. The results of the “Quality of Life Index” survey were used in the presentation.

After a 15 minutes break Political analyst, the Founding Director of the Regional Studies Center (RSC) Richard Giragosian introduced a lecture on Armenia’s Political Crisis.
