Buchpräsentation: Migration and its Impact on Armenia: A field practice

In spring 2015 Viennese students of Social and Cultural Anthropology researched on the multifaceted forms of migration in Armenia. During their field practice intensive collaborations between Armenian and Austrian students emerged. The resultant articles are now assembled in the edited volume "Migration and its Impact on Armenia: A field practice".
