Webinar: Crisis in Armenia’s Russia-Only Security Doctrine Part II

Join regional experts Lilit Gevorgyan and Armen Kharazian for “PART II: CRISIS IN ARMENIA’S RUSSIA-ONLY SECURITY DOCTRINE” – the second in the What’s Next series of discussions on the post-war Armenian reality.

Gevorgyan and Kharazian will frame the 44-day catastrophe and its aftermath within a wider context to help better understand the contours of a world where Russian and Armenian interests might diverge on fundamental issues.

Topics to be covered:

• Key Armenia-Russia security, defense and border protection treaties; collective security arrangements under Russia-led military bloc CSTO

• The application of Armenia-Russia security treaties during the 44-Day War; consequences of the 2016 transfer of air defense capabilities to Russia

• Armenia-Russia border protections treaties and Azerbaijan’s creeping annexation of Armenian territories

• Armenia’s quality of governance and policy-making and its impact on the country’s national security

• Armenia’s future under the “Russia-centered” security doctrine: opportunities and risks

• What can be done to mitigate current risks and manage future crises
