LOS ANGELES, Calif.—Scholars from across the world met at UCLA to discuss reparations for the Armenian Genocide during a conference on Oct. 23 titled, “Genocide and Then What? The Law, Ethics, and Politics of Making Amends.”
Hosted by the International Human Rights Law Association at UCLA, the conference featured a soon to be released report on the Armenian Genocide that brings together years of research from the legal, ethical, and political perspective. This independent study was made possible by a grant from the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF).
In addition to presenting the report, the event featured panels exploring Armenian Genocide reparations in the broader contexts of human rights violation reparations, the ethical foundations, the political implications, and real property determinations for reparations.
The Armenian Weekly published the full text of Dr. Alfred De Zayas’s talk at the conference, and will feature expanded coverage of the conference in the coming days.
