This interactive panel discussion will highlight the key security challenges facing Armenia and Artsakh such as the territorial integrity of the Republic of Armenia, the status of the Republic of Artsakh, the increasingly aggressive posture of the Azeri leadership in the face of general world-wide indifference, and the inability of the Armenian authorities to seek appropriate recourse. The audience will have the opportunity to engage with the panelists by posing questions towards an informative dialogue. A well-informed and engaged Diaspora is an essential component for the survival and prosperity of the Armenian nation and statehood.

Today the party operates in Armenia, Artsakh, and all countries with an Armenian Diaspora. The ARF has served the Armenian nation during its worst hours and has given birth to numerous national heroes and organizations that have and continue to tend to the advocacy, educational, social, and youth needs of the Armenian Diaspora following the Armenian Genocide.
