THE HAGUE, JANUARY 28, NOYAN TAPAN – ARMENIANS TODAY."Armenians
in the Netherlands, An Exploring Survey" is the title of the book,
which has just been published as a result of recent investigation on
the Armenian community of the Netherlands. The book is published by
the Federation of Armenian Organisations in the Netherlands (FAON).
For the research, which was made possible with financial support of
the Dutch government, a written sample survey has been conducted of
hundreds of Armenians selected from thousands of available addresses
of Armenians living in Holland. The results of the research give more
insight which countries the Armenians of the Netherlands came from,
and the duration of their residence. Additionally, information has
been collected on the education level of Armenians in the country of
birth and in the Netherlands, as well as their social and economic
position, particularly their labour market position.
The social cultural position, like for example language use, social
contacts, mixed marriages, religious orientation, participation to
Armenian activities etc. are also investigated.
In addition to the outcome of the survey, the book contains an overview
of the history of Armenia and information on the Armenian community
of the Netherlands since the 17th century.
