A topic of the second “Lessons of the Future” in Yerevan were prospects for Armenian-Georgian relations

05 November 2015

Another session of “Lessons of the Future” was held at the State University of Economics within the framework of the program “Russian perspective” implemented by the Gorchakov Fund.


This time young scientists and students discussed issues of Armenian-Georgian cooperation in political-economic and logistical fields. The event sparked interest of the young audience as the Armenian-Georgian relations, in particular, are crucial for both the countries from the point of view of creating mutually acceptable conditions for regional stability and cooperation. At the same time, this topic rarely becomes a subject of a discussion or research.


Political analyst and research fellow of the Center for Regional Studies at the Public Administration Academy of the Republic of Armenia Johnny Melikyan and specialist of the Department of Foreign Relations at ZAO South Caucasus Railway, President of NGO Consensus and member of the Gorchakov Fund’s Club of Friends Akop Gabrielyan participated as experts in the event.


The goal of the program “Russian perspective” is communicating key priorities of the Russian foreign policy to international audience. A series of lectures by Russian experts on economy and Eurasian integration, foreign policy and information technologies “Lessons of the future” was launched within the framework of that program jointly with NGO Consensus (Yerevan) in the fall of 2015 at the Armenian universities (the Russian-Armenian (Slavic) University, the Yerevan State University and the Armenian State University of Economics).


On September 24, Dr. Mariam Voskanyan, Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Economic Theory and Problems of Economy during a Transition Period at the Russian-Armenian (Slavic) University, gave the first lecture of the series on the topic of “Potential of the Armenian economy in the EEU”.
