The Armenian Institute is dedicated to making Armenian culture and history a living experience through innovative programmes, educational resources, workshops, lectures, exhibits and performances. 



The Institute Library includes over 8000 volumes and collections of serials on Armenia, the diaspora and neighbouring peoples and countries. The core of the library is the collections of Charles Dowsett, the first Professor of Armenian Studies at Oxford, the historian Christopher J Walker, the chronicler of British Armenians Joan George, the author and translator Mischa Kudian and the personal papers of David Miller, the first British resident ambassador in Armenia. The magnificent Dowsett collection of some 4000 books contains scholarly and rare publications in Armenian, Georgian, Ottoman Turkish and most European languages.
