In this episode, we take a closer look at how the relationship of Armenia with its neighbors shaped its present political state. We cover the horrifying numbers behind the Armenian genocide in 1915-16 and the continuous partitioning of the state.
We further examine the development of Armenian nationalism in an era where large populations of Armenians were forced to migrate due to oppressive policies of ruling states.
We finally look at the Nagorno-Karabakh question and explain how the conflict has progressed since the independence of the Republic of Armenia.
