Overview: Anastasia Baskina will present findings of her research on immigration and socio-economic integration of Syrian Armenians in the Republic of Armenia. Anastasia’s study has sought to identify major difficulties and challenges encountered by Syrian Armenians in Armenia and to examine measures undertaken by the government, civil society and international organizations to address this issue. The research is primarily based on expert interviews conducted with the RA Ministry of Diaspora, State Migration Service, Coordination Center for Syrian Armenians’ Issues, Armenian Red Cross Society, various civil society organizations working with refugees, as well as with representatives of the Syrian Armenian Diaspora in Yerevan. The presentation will be followed by a discussion.
