The perpetrator and enemy in this case are the Turks, and as a result, the political memory of the Armenian diaspora is rooted in a strong narrative of collective victimhood On May 19-20, Helsinki will be the site of a new conference featuring presentations on the abuse of history in international conflicts.

    Hetq, 29 April 2016   The escalation of early April and the clear and present danger to Armenia’s survival that it underlined raise a number of important questions for the Armenian leaders, opinion makers and members of the general public both in Armenia and in the Diaspora. These questions will need to be answered in a very short order. The situation is very simple and no further analysis or discussion is required. The questions are as follows.
