New Politics: #ElectricYerevan Challenges GovernanceShare:
June 2015 brought thousands of demonstrators to the streets of Yerevan following an electricity price hike proposal. The city center was gridlocked, flooded as it was with spontaneous protesters from every generation, and all walks of life, who all demanded accountability and transparency from both the electricity company and the government.
#ElectricYerevan and its subsequent months was the topic of discussion as the USC Institute of Armenian Studies welcomed young scholars Karena Avedissian and Babken DerGrigorian to its series of lunchtime talks at the USC Doheny Memorial Library. Avedissian and DerGrigorian were in Conversation with USC Annenberg’s Ev Boyle.
