This introduction discusses the journey and struggle of the author and his colleagues in Armenia in how they set up their office, and how they conducted and monitored their research, which was focused on four types of population: the survivors of the earthquake in northwestern Armenia in 1988; the refugees from Azerbaijan who fled the cities of Sumgait and Baku because of pogroms; the women, children, and soldiers affected by the war in Nagorno-Karabakh; and the ordinary citizens who survived several winters without heat because of the blockade imposed by Turkey and Azerbaijan. In addition to their research and interviews around Yerevan, capital of Armenia, they also travelled to different places in northwestern Armenia where the earthquake in 1988 had caused massive destruction.
