The Remarkable 2018 "Velvet Revolution": Armenia's Experiment Against Government Corruption

Author(s): Daniel Feldman, Haris Alibašić

In: Public Integrity, Vol 21, No 4, 2019, pp. 420-432

Feldman attended a conference on anti-corruption organized by the new government in 2018 with judges, prosecutors and investigators. The focus of the article is an examination of how far the nature of the rebellion (and its wider context) might be expected to promote a more democratic government committed to end corruption. After making comparisons with other countries, they provisionally conclude that the prospects for a transition to a government respecting the rule of law are positive.
