This is the second of a three-part series on the contemporary situation of Armenian communities in the Middle East. The series will be a very timely and thought-provoking intervention during a tense time in the homeland, region, and beyond. By focusing on the Armenian minorities, broader questions regarding diaspora, minority politics, migration, and more will be examined. The second session will focus on Syria and Iran. The first, in Fall, focused on Lebanon; the third, in Spring, will focus on Turkey.
