USC DIASPORA SYMPOSIUM OF NOV. 20 WAS WEBCAST GLOBALLY

Los Angeles -- After months of preparation, the USC Institute of Armenian Studies presented on November 20, a one-day symposium on the Armenian Diaspora in its present configuration, focusing on the imperatives and determinants of collective action, and exploring the modalities of achieving it through electoral processes.

The symposium discussed critically the different methods of transnational cooperation and cohesion, and searched for mechanisms that would maximize the legitimacy and efficacy of a pan-diasporan leadership structure.

By all indications, the Diaspora Symposium has generated great interest in Armenia and among Diaspora communities worldwide.
