Armenia’s Five Stages of Grief

armenia-ararat

Countries, just like people, will experience the five stages of grief after a significant loss. The grief model (or the Kübler-Ross model) postulates that those experiencing grief go through a series of five emotions: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.2020 was a challenging year for all nations. COVID – 19 pandemic and economic downturn have negatively impacted almost everyone.It was an exceptionally difficult year for Armenia because, besides the pandemic, defeat in the war launched by Azerbaijan against the unrecognized Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) Republic in autumn 2020 resulted in significant human and material losses.In the first half of 2021, Armenia grasped domestic political instability, triggering an early parliamentary election in June 2021.The challenge is that Armenia has faced so many losses and with such frequency that we as a society have never quite reached stage five – Acceptance and Hope. It is imperative that the Armenian society finds a path to stage five , stop complaining, and cease blaming others for their problems.In order to reach a stage of hope, acceptance must precede it.Check out the full report on CivilNet.
