From End of Empires to the Global Age

Woodbury Univesity, Burbank, CA - 27 October 2012

Organised by the Armenian Educational Benevelont Union & Nor Serount Cultural Association

Conference Paper: "From End of Empires to the Global Age: Issues and Questions in Armenian Political Ideology and Strategy"

The founding ideological and strategic pillars of Armenian political parties in the late 19th century in general and the Hunchakian Party in particular were social democracy and the "liberation of the Armenian people" living under suppression and injustice. While many of the fundamental principles of social democracy and freedom have remained relevant in the world in the last 125-year, the changes and developments ushered by the end of Empires in the 20th centuries and the emergence of a connected globalised world pose numerous questions that have not been fully addressed by the leadership of the Party. What is the relevance of an Armenian political party that has existed for 125 years to Armenians living in the 21st century Los Angeles, Paris, Beirut, Damascus or Buenos Aires? This presentation will attempt to deal with this question and offer some thoughts and reflection for future consideration.
