THE CRISIS OF THE ARMENIAN COMMUNITY OF SYRIA AS A GROUND FOR THE REEVALUATION OF THE PAN-DIASPORAN PRIORITIES (In the Context of World Processes)

By: Avakian Knarik, Institute of History of NAS RA

As a consequence of the protracted and devastating war launched by the terrorist forces in 2011, thousands of Armenian-Syrians have taken shelter among other countries (Lebanon, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, the USA, Canada, Sweden, etc.) also in the Motherland, in the Republics of Armenia and Artsakh (Karabagh).
The present geo-political challenges should further promote the reevaluation of the pan-Diasporan priorities, in order to radically revise and reorganize, in a moral-psychological, ideological-practical sense, the communal life in the Diaspora. That epoch-making mission should resolutely and urgently be assumed both by the Diaspora with all its structures, the Armenian Church (Apostolic, Evangelical, Catholic), the national parties (Social Democrat Party - SDP Hunchakian, Armenian Revolutionary Federation – ARF Dashnaktsutyun, Armenian Democratic Liberal Party - ADLP Ramkavar), the pan-Armenian benevolent organizations, all the Diasporan unions and clubs, the Armenian mass media in Armenian and foreign languages (the press, radio, television, internet), the educational institutions and the Motherland Armenia (RA and AR) with its state, ecclesiastical, public and other levers, to guide and to coordinate all the joint efforts.
