ABOUT US

About

The Applied Policy Research Institute of Armenia (APRI Armenia) is a nonpartisan think tank and policy accelerator focused on advancing regional stability, sustainable prosperity, and civic engagement. Our programs and initiatives are oriented toward concrete problem-solving, addressing key challenges for the near-term and long-term realization of Armenia’s potential. Through its activities as a convener, collaborator and co-funder of strategic research, APRI Armenia facilitates breakthrough ideas and multistakeholder initiatives for positive change in our region.
 
The launch of APRI Armenia comes in response to a dire need for deep insight, dynamic policy dialogue and clear understanding of Armenia in its geopolitical context. The organization is action-oriented, with a blend of long-term initiatives and near-term capacity-building projects. We are creating a space to work on critical policy issues in a constructive and collaborative professional atmosphere.

 

APRI Armenia is an independent organization founded by the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU), a trusted name in Armenian philanthropy for more than 115 years.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES

APRI's Founding Board has extensive experience in nation-building and global development.
