Dear Guest,

We welcome you to the official website of the Second Global Forum Against the Crime of Genocide. We hope that this site will help you to navigate successfully through the origins of the Forum and keep you up-to-date on upcoming panels, presentations and panelists.

In modern world violence, mass killings and displacements have become increasingly frequent, resulting in humanitarian catastrophes and crises of a horrifying scale. It has become perfectly clear that the international fight Against the crime of genocide must be given a new impetus with a new content, accompanied with efficient prevention tools.

The event will bring together representatives of governments, parliaments, major international and human rights organizations, acclaimed experts of international law, representatives of the leading media, and other stakeholders.

We hope that this year discussions and exchange of views will be conducive to the creation of effective mechanisms and workable solutions for the prevention of genocide and stop it being part of our present and future.

We wish you a very productive work at the Second Global Forum Against the Crime of Genocide in Yerevan.

Sincerely,

 

Artak ZAKARYAN Garen NAZARIAN
 
Chairman of the Standing Committee on Foreign Relations
of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia
 
Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs
of the Republic of Armenia
