The Armenian Weekly has been home to political commentary and analysis from the global Armenian community for nearly a century, and the Hairenik Weekly, even longer. For clarity, political analysis is neither descriptive writing nor opinion-based writing. It seeks to explore, explicate, and elucidate. It is not writing that stops at summary, nor does it make unfounded assertions. Instead, it is rigorous and systematic, exploring a wide variety of political problems and questions to test various claims against a balanced and informed field of relevant secondary scholarship and primary sources. Ideally, articles with this kind of analytical bent should be authored by those with some professional experience in the subject matter about which they are writing.
