Corruption Perceptions Index in the RA (2021)

The study of indicators and indices published by international organizations allows to address two important problems. First, to assess the performance of the RA in the given period with the help of comprehensive numerical measures, as well as to make intertemporal comparisons in order to understand whether the country moves in the desirable direction. Second, to compare the performance of the RA with other countries to ascertain Armenia’s relative position in the region and Eurasian Economic Union. These results are important, since they help to derive the comprehensive assessment of the economic situation, which is needed both for the public and the private sector. The present analysis is aimed at addressing the foregoing problems. Full material is only available in Armenian.

Why did Turkish authoritism come to replace the American "democracy"? US ideological failure in the Middle East and Afghanistan (Central Asia) and Turkey's rapid transition from hybrid democracy to authoritarianism

Since the Cold War, and also after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the informal Anglo-Saxon leaders of the collective West, the US and the UK have sought to establish loyal regimes in the countries of the Middle East, Central Asia and the post-Soviet space in order to serve them to their own geopolitical and geo-economic interests. This process could not take place without a certain ideological accompaniment. Initially, the countries and peoples of the region were offered the model of Western democracy and the Western path of development as a "compensation" for the "desired" geopolitical choice. However, the ideological failure of the US in the Middle East and Afghanistan forced the West to reconsider its long-term strategy in this matter.

An interesting "coincidence": the transformation of US policy in the Middle East was accompanied by a change in the political system in Turkey. For the peoples of the region, first of all the political elites, the "Turkish authoritarianism" wrapped in religious (Sunni) and ethnic (Turkiс) ideological threads is much more perceptible and exemplary. In fact, the West, in the form of a new Turkish authoritarian model, offers the countries of the region a choice between "ethnic-religious authoritarianism" and "secular authoritarianism" that is encouraged by China and Russia. Full material is only available in Armenian.

  


Results of Jo Biden's first Summit for Democracy

The 46th President of the United States Joe Biden has repeatedly stated that the democracies of the world must unite to face the common challenges together. True to his promise made during the presidential campaign, Biden hosted the first Summit for Democracy on December 9-10, which took place online. As it became clear from the results of the first Summit for Democracy, the aim of the latter is not to divide the world into democratic and non-democratic countries, but to pressure non-democratic states. Anti-Chinese, anti-Russian and anti-Iranian statements were made during the three days of the Summit. This article will examine the key points made during the three days of the first Summit for Democracy, the presented new initiatives, the speeches of the leaders of a number of participating countries, as well as the incidents related to the Summit. Full material is only available in Armenian.
