Between 1920 and 1924, the Armenian people faced a tumultuous and hopeful time. Over this brief span, they went through secession, war, revolution, and the formation their First Modern Republic’s constitution, government, and state. Like any burgeoning nation, Armenia needed to renegotiate diplomatic ties with Russia, the Ottomans, as well as her new neighbors. The young country also faced mounting problems at home; the Russian exit left Armenia without industry, jobs and power. With the rise of a new political faction – the Armenian Revolutionary Federation – anticipation around the impacts that the treaty of Sèvres will have and mounting tensions. As the Ottomans work with the Bolsheviks to financially disable the new Armenia, the 1920s pose a variety of challenges to this fledgling nation. In this committee, Armenian leaders will be challenged with solidifying their existence as a nation, dealing with conflicting internal political ideologies guiding visions for the future of the nation, forming friendly relations and peacefully keeping enemies at bay while simultaneously providing for her citizens.
