ARMENIAN GENOCIDE: CHALLENGES ON THE EVE OF CENTENARY
International Conference
Yerevan, March 22-23




conference



Conference Goals and Objectives

The international conference on the eve of centenary of the Armenian Genocide, organized by the State Commission on Coordination of the events dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide aims to start discussions and make conclusions in three main directions:

a. Further perspectives and directions of the Armenian Genocide studies and organization of museum exhibitions,
b. Imperatives and efficient methods of the fight against the denial,
c. Discussion of compensation for the successors of the Armenian Genocide survivors and victims, and issues related to its legal justification.

The conference will be an important harbor for efficient scholarly discussions and necessary conclusions concerning the centenary of the Armenian Genocide, for clear conclusions and recommendations in terms of the scholarly work on not yet observed or less explored issues as well as the potential support for it.

This conference will also allow developing more efficient mechanisms and methods of response to the Turkish denial. Finally, this conference is designed to develop and plan the overall strategy of various events to be organized in the Republic of Armenia and abroad on the occasion of centenary based on the professional and reputable opinion.

The conference is an opportunity to clarify the issue of elimination of consequences of the Armenian Genocide and to develop the further strategy.

The organization of such a conference, in which experts on Armenian Genocide studies take part, will be an important review on the eve of Yerevan conference of International Association of Genocide Scholars in 2015. It will also promote the generation change of Armenian Genocide scholars.
