Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC)-Armenia invites you to a presentation on
“Influence of the Government Policy and International Aid on Identity of Syrian Armenians in the Republic of Armenia (2011-2015)”
to be delivered by Daria Vorobyeva (CRRC-Armenia International Fellow)
Although the history of Armenian presence within Syria is long, most Armenians arrived to Syria as a result of the Armenian Genocide in 1915. Since then, Armenians firmly established themselves in Syria, ascending both the social and economic ladders. Members of the Armenian diaspora in Syria operated schools, churches and cultural centers. However, since the beginning of the Syrian uprising in 2011, about 12-15%, or about 12 000, of the Syrian-Armenian population has left Syria to repatriate to Armenia.
