Fifty scholars and experts of the Armenian Society of Fellows (ASOF) convened in the monastery of St. Lazarus in Venice, along with the remote participation of another 59 scholars and experts late last month.
The inaugural conference of the Fellows involved one full day of presentations and discussions, and another day of small-group meetings focused on planning for the next steps of task forces.
ASOF pursues a number of projects, including establishing a center of international law in Armenia as well as a scientific center.
A survey conducted among members prior to the conference showed that education and research in Armenia were the main priority they thought ASOF should work on, followed by the country’s security and, in the third place, its wealth and economy.
