Episode Info:

People power prevailed in Armenia in April, as mass demonstrators dislodged Prime Minister (and former president) Serzh Sargsyan, who changed the county’s constitution in a bid to remain in office.

After a peaceful revolution, Armenia has a new leader and is embarking on a laundry list of complex political and economic reforms.

This week on Wake we’ll dive into what Armenia’s revolution tells us about the country’s future, the future of the Transcaucasus and the states of the former Soviet Union.

Helping us do that are this week's guests:

  • Richard Giragosian, director of the Regional Studies Center, an independent think tank in Armenia
  • Anahit Shirinyan, academy associate at Chatham House
