THE EUROPE OF GEOGRAPHY, POLITICS, CULTURE OR ECONOMICS: ARMENIA AND TURKEY - EUROPE OR ASIA?
Languages of publication
The Europe of today is not the Europe of geography, politics or culture. It is the Europe of economics, to which everything is subjugated. Due to fast travel, geographical divisions do not count any more, political ones are of no value in the international world of cartels, and culture is globalized today. Turkey and Armenia, two states which are longtime enemies, are an example of this new phenomenon in both Europe and Asia. It is only the issue of membership of the European Union which requires the univocal answer YES or NO to belonging, to one or the other continent. The notion of 'Europe' is thus vulnerable to change, due to the presence of Islam and of new 'guests' who soon will make us, Europeans, ourselves guests within Europe.
