The HJS Virtual Event Series: 'Should the UK Recognise the Armenian Genocide?' - Wednesday 13th April, 3pm-4pm (BST)
The UK is lagging behind the world in recognising the Armenian Genocide. Democratic nations including the United States, France, and Germany have recognised it, as have the devolved parliaments of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. And yet, we have failed to do so, citing reasons that include: the fact that the term “genocide” did not exist in 1948, and that it should be a matter for Turkey and Armenia to sort out between themselves. The UK is lagging behind the world in recognising the Armenian Genocide. Democratic nations including the United States, France, and Germany have recognised it, as have the devolved parliaments of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. And yet, we have failed to do so, citing reasons that include: the fact that the term “genocide” did not exist in 1948, and that it should be a matter for Turkey and Armenia to sort out between themselves.

The Henry Jackson Society is pleased to gather world experts to discuss why the UK government should recognise this genocide and what parliamentarians are doing to make this a possibility.
