International Association of Genocide Scholars Executive and Advisory Boards: Statement Condemning the Azerbaijani Blockade of the Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh)



03.02.2023

The International Association of Genocide Scholars (IAGS) Executive and Advisory Boards strongly condemns Azerbaijan’s blockade of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and the ongoing aggression against the indigenous Armenian population of the region and warns of the risk of genocide against the Armenian population of that entity. We reaffirm the IAGS Executive Board October 24, 2022 “Statement on Azerbaijani Aggression Against the Republic of Armenia and the Indigenous Armenians of the South Caucasus” and call for the immediate lifting of the blockade.

On December 12, 2022 the government of Azerbaijan imposed a blockade on the enclave of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) creating an ongoing humanitarian crisis for its 120,000 Armenian inhabitant, including 30,000 children and 20,000 elderly.

Dear visitor,


The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute will be closed on January 28, 2023.

Sincerely,

Artsakh։ A Genocide by Attrition



19.01.2023

Genocide is not an event but an unfolding process.

According to Raphael Lemkin, the lawyer and human rights activist who coined the concept itself, the term “genocide” encompasses physical annihilation of a group through direct perpetration of harm or indirect action that contributes to this goal. Furthering this assertion, Lemkin also argued that “genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a national group...but is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves.” With this perspective in mind, Lemkin viewed the Nazis’ passive assaults against the Jews—such as apportioning food, depriving people of basic needs to preserve health and life, withholding firewood and medicine, gathering people under conditions detrimental to health— as acts of genocide.


THE BAKU MASSACRES OF 13th-19th JANUARY, 1990



19.01.2023

A group of deputies of the RA National Assembly, representatives and teaching staff of Yerevan State University and Armenian State Pedagogical University, as well as many students and citizens, all paid their respects to the memory of the Armenians who died in the 1990 Baku pogroms, visiting the heights of Tsitsernakaberd today. They laid flowers near the khachkar erected in memory of the victims of those massacres organised by the Azerbaijani government.

The pogroms against the Armenian population of Baku, which took place between January 13 and 19, 1990, should be considered in the context of the ethnic violence and anti-Armenian policy carried out against the Armenian population living in the Azerbaijan SSR in 1988-1990. The first manifestation of this policy was the massacre of the Armenian population of the city of Sumgait during February 27 and 29, 1988. The lack of appropriate legal and political assessment of the Sumgait pogroms created an atmosphere of impunity, which contributed to the further expansion and continuation of anti-Armenian violence.
