Recognition, Responsibility and Reconciliation: The Trinity of the Armenian Genocide

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The 24th of April 2015 will mark the centennial commemoration
of the Armenian genocide and is expected to be a worldwide
ceremony. Hundred years will have passed since the start of
the state orchestrated massacres and deportations in 1915
which emptied the majority of historical Armenia from its native
population. A century has passed, but ironically, the Armenian
genocide seems to become more topical and significant the
farther we have moved from the events. This Article discusses the trinity of the genocide and why none of each aspect can be reached without the two other, namely Recognition, Responsibility and Reconciliation.
