The Forum of Armenian Associations of Europe is an umbrella organization representing numerous Armenian organizations and individuals across Europe. As there are more than two million Armenians in Europe, forming significant local communities in 23 different countries, the FAAE was founded in Geneva in 1998 to represent the interests of the Armenians in Europe. Its goal is to facilitate co-operation and solidarity among Armenian communities in Europe to meet the changing needs of the European Diaspora and to promote the interests of Armenia and Karabagh. FAAE membership is open to any Armenian associations in Europe that have democratically elected representatives and agree to adhere to the FAAE charter.
