Liberalism in Armenia

This article gives an overview of liberalism in Armenia. It is limited to liberal parties with substantial support, mainly proved by having had a representation in parliament.


In the struggle for independence at the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century a national liberal current arose.


Though there were some attempts to refound the national liberal current after independence, these attempts were unsuccessful. However, the Republican Party of Armenia (Hayastani Hanrapetakan Kusaktsutyun, not included below) joined the ELDR group in the Council of Europe.
