Ramgavar Azadagan Party

RAMGAVAR AZADAGAN PARTY

Armenian political party of Lebanon.

The ultimate goal of the Ramgavar Azadagan party, founded in 1921, was the liberation of Armenia. It has oriented its activities toward preserving Armenian culture among Armenian communities throughout the world. After a period of dormancy, the party was revived in the 1950s, in the wake of the increasing conflicts between the Dashnak party and the Hunchak Party. The Ramgavar party presented itself as an alternative that avoided issues divisive to the Armenian community. During the Lebanese civil war of 1975, the Ramgavar party opposed what it considered to be the right-wing policies of the Dashnak party.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
