Scott Horton Interviews Ara Sanjian and Dennis Marburger

March 03, 2011


Ara Sanjian, Associate Professor in Armenian and Middle Eastern
History, discusses the Armenian demonstrations that are somewhat
inspired by Egypt et al, but are of a different character; discontent
about lack of political reform and economic opportunity; conflicts
arising from border disputes with Azerbaijan; how the Soviet
dissolution left the Armenian economy in the hands of oligarchs; and
the few bright spots: an educated populace and affordable internet
access and mobile phones.

Ara Sanjian is Associate Professor in Armenian and Middle Eastern
History at the University of Michigan - Dearborn.

Dennis Marburger is a friend of Antiwar Radio.
