The Convention of the Future Armenian is based on the internationally recognized and widely used “citizens’ assembly” model of participatory democracy. 200 participants were selected from a pool of pre-registered citizens by a transparent lottery drawing with a representative sampling method to ensure the representation in the Convention of gender, age and educational groups in society, as well as the participants’ countries and places of residence.

The Principles of the Convention


The current challenges facing Armenia and the Armenian people can be tackled only by the strengthening of the unity of Armenians worldwide. The Convention serves as a platform for pan-Armenian dialogue, bringing the potential of the expert community and diverse groups from society under one roof, thus contributing to the formation of both expert and active, public discussions.


Registration for participation in the Convention was open to anyone from Armenia, Artsakh or the Diaspora. With no restrictions on the participation of adult citizens, the Convention brought together equally represented groups covering all genders, ages, educational and geographical strata of all Armenians worldwide. All interested parties who register for the Convention, but do not make it through the lottery stage, had the opportunity to make their voices heard in other planned formats.


The entire process of the Convention is open and public, including the work of expert committees, the lottery to select participants, public discussions and the process of forming partnership networks. All interested parties have opportunity to follow all of these processes on our official website, social media platforms and news sources.

Public legacy

All recommendations and programs adopted within the framework of the Convention are public property and available to all members of the public and private sectors so that they can develop their respective versions. As an authentic instrument of direct democracy, the Convention is a platform of consolidating the efforts of all strata of society.

New mindset, new results

Together, we are forging a new culture of civic participation with dialogue and awareness of collective responsibility at its very core. Through its approaches, the Convention, which is the only one of its kind in Armenia, should contribute to the formation of discourse on issues of vital importance for the state and society and to the development of ways to overcome challenges.
