“Armenians around the World: Migration and Transnationality” (Peter Lang International Academic Publishers, 2015, 280p), edited by Dr. Arthur Mkrtichyan, explores Armenian migration around the world, including the interrelation between domestic communities in Armenia and Armenian communities elsewhere. It takes a close look at the motivation to migrate and the specifics of Armenian communities in different EU countries and the US. Authors from Armenia, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, and the US use various approaches to the subject such as case-study, in-depth interviews, surveys, comparative and network analysis, as well as migration and transnationalism theories. The collection offers new insights into local Armenian community structure, lifestyle, communication and adaptation, social, economic and gender aspects of migration.

“The Interrelation between Migration and Human Capital Reproduction in Armenia” (YSU Press, 2015, 112 p) is a study conducted by a team of researchers within an ASCN funded project. Dr. Marzpanyan and Dr. Markosyan will represent the study that uses human capital theory’s critical analysis to reveal the interrelation between migration and human capital reproduction in Armenia, as well as the special role of migration risks. The factors of interconnections between migration motives and migration behavior and human capital investments in target groups will be explored. Recommendations for human capital group-oriented reproduction in the context of migration risks management will be offered for discussion. A copy of the book will be awarded to attendees. 
The book “The Interrelation between Migration and Human Capital Reproduction in Armenia” will be distributed to the guests.
