— The Erimtan Angle —

‘Ayda Erbal, an adjunct professor of politics at New York University, presented a paper, “Lost in Translation: The Monument’s ‘Demolishing’” at the conference The Armenian Genocide’s Legacy 100 Years Later at the Hague.[1] The conference was organized by Alexis Demirdjian of the Centennial Project Foundation, the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the USC Dornsife Institute of Armenian Studies. Published on Mar 9, 2015′.

The conference organisers published this disclaimer on the website: “The use of the word genocide is not meant to be determinative of the legal responsibility of parties to the conflict nor is the aim of this project to establish that the 1915-1923 actually constituted acts of genocide. Rather, the word is used as an academic concept since the events are commonly known under this label.  The objectives of the Conference and the book are purely academic and are not aimed at promoting activism relating to the proving or disproving that the events which took place between 1915 and 1923 constitute acts of genocide”.[2]
