About Organizers:

Founded in 2016 “China-Eurasia” Council for Political and Strategic Research (CECPSR) is one of the Eurasia’s international policy institutions focused on China and Eurasia defense and security; regional study; and transnational challenges in the era of China’s pivot towards Eurasian mainland and Russia’s and the US’s pivots towards Asia.
It is a bipartisan, nonprofit policy research organization. On the basis of its research and network the CECPSR is ready to provide advises to decision makers in politics and business.
CECPSR focuses on strengthening cooperation, mutual understanding and peace, between individuals and scholars of Eurasian countries and China.

The Institute of Oriental Studies, National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia (IOS NAS RA) was founded in 1971, on the basis of the Department of Oriental Studies, created in 1958.  The IOS studies the history, socio-political, international and regional relations, the culture, religion, the problems of national minorities and ethnic groups of the countries and peoples of the Middle East, Caucasus and Eastern Asia from antiquity to the present. From the geographical point of view this is conditioned by the circumstance that the Middle East and Caucasus are the regions which are the immediate neighbors of Armenia, whose ancient and modern history is closely interlaced with the history of the Assyrians, Babylonians, Hittites, Persians, Byzantines, Georgians, Caucasian Albanians, Arabs, Kurds, Turks and other peoples. Besides, in most Arabic countries, Iran, Turkey, Georgia and Northern Caucasus there are active Armenian communities.

The Department of Oriental Studies of the International Scientific-Educational Center of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia was founded in 2008. The establishment of the department proceeded from the need to prepare highly qualified specialists in the field of Oriental Studies, one of the important branches in historiography. Over the last 5 years, the faculty of the department published 20 monographs and 6 study handbooks. Only from 2014 – 2017 the faculty published 120 articles.
