The Armenian Diaspora and the Narrative of Power
The influence of the Armenian diaspora on the policies of host-countries is unlike that of all other cases under consideration. It is different because the Armenian diaspora is made up of a people that has no sovereign home country, embassies and diplomatic representatives, military alliances, trade agreements, and other bilateral and multilateral arrangements. Geopolitical, military and economic factors are of little value, therefore, in attempts to influence the shaping of foreign policy. In this way the Armenians stand in contrast to Greeks, Jews, Poles and other nationalities with significant diasporas.
