The Armenian Genocide Legacy: 100 Years on
The centennial of the Armenian genocide will be the topic of a public event and two-day conference, gathering international experts from the fields of law, history, political science, sociology, anthropology, literature, education, and media studies who will discuss why the genocide matters today.
The public screening of ‘Grandma’s Tattoos’ (Suzanne Khardalian, 2012) will open the event on 5 March as part of the Roads to Justice series about Transitional Justice. Dr. Ronald Suny delivers the keynote lecture about Transitional Justice and Armenia. Afterwards, dr. Uğur Ümit Üngör reflects on both the film and the lecture.
The interdisciplinary book From Catastrophe to Genocide: The Armenian ‘Question’ Revisited a Century Later forms the basis of this conference. Each of the contributing authors will be given the opportunity to present the subject and conclusions of their chapter, which in turn will foster a fruitful discussion around the topic.

The public screening is hosted at Humanity House, Prinsegracht 8 in The Hague
