Armenian and Turkish Lobbies and U.S. (Non-)Recognition of the Armenian Genocide
Lecture | September 18 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 270 Stephens Hall
The goal of this talk is to present and analyze the political opposition between the Armenian and Turkish lobbies in favor or against the official recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the United States. We will discuss why, despite decades of efforts and some positive results, the Armenian-American advocacy groups have not yet obtained the full recognition of the Genocide by the U.S. federal authorities and how Turkey and Turkish groups have lobbied to prevent such a recognition.
