Many of us converse on the future of the civil society in Armenia, work to strengthen the sphere, initiate projects in the name of development, but few of us know those who happened to be the founders of the civil society in Armenia and whose enthusiastic work derived the roots of civil culture in Armenia. Among those pioneers is Karen Asatryan, the Founding President of the Armenian UN Association.

Since early 90s Karen Asatryan was one of the brilliant leaders of the civil sphere in Armenia. His enthusiastic and devout work was dedicated to the formulation and development of the civil society in our country. Through the motto “We Make Our History” Karen Asatryan with his colleagues and successors has become an ample change and in spite of countless difficulties gave birth to the civil society of Armenia.

His courageous character, unbreakable will and unwavering belief has become an example for many young activists of the sphere and serves as an inspiration for the coming generations.
Karen Asatryan shouldered the high responsibility to create the civil culture and spread the uppermost human values through the NGO work. From the very commencement and up to the riddance of his career Karen Asatryan’s commitment and certainty of the thriving future of the Armenian civil society initiated a great deal of projects ushering different layers of the Armenian society towards democratic values, human rights, social inclusion, peace and confidence building.
