EASTON, Mass. — Global conflicts seem a world away from this small town. However, it is just possible that a key to solving the problem facing Artsakh (Nagorno Karabagh) may lie with young students at Stonehill College.
This small Catholic university is dedicated to the ideals of peace and justice and it is in this environment that Anna Ohanyan, the college’s chair of the Department of Political Science and International Studies, wants to create ties between Armenia and the West, as well as come up with creative solutions to solve both internal and external problems.
“Coming from conflict region, I always wanted to solve the problems. I didn’t want to focus on theory. I am very interested in how policies are made globally,” Ohanyan said.
This focus, she said, “drives my work.”
