Mass Violence in the Middle East Today: Conference in Brussels, Belgium

  |   1050 Brussels   |   Event Details

100 Years since the End of the First World War, 70 Years after the Genocide Convention: Reflections on Mass Violence in the Middle East Today

 

Speakers:

  • Uğur Ümit Üngör, Associate Professor at the Department of History, Utrecht University
  • Vicken Cheterian, political analyst and Lecturer, Webster University & University of Geneva

 

Moderator:

  • Aude Merlin, Lecturer in Political Science, Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB)

 

December 9, 2018 is the 70th anniversary of the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. Yet neither this Convention nor later initiatives have put an end to mass violence.

This conference will focus on one region, the Middle-East, which has experienced many episodes of mass violence in the last 100 years, most recently with the massacres of the Yezidis in Iraq and Syria.

On December 13, two accomplished academics, Ugur Ümit Ungor and Vicken Cheterian will examine the region’s history. They will try to explain the present. Could it be that ignorance or the wilful suppression of history have helped perpetuate patterns of violence? Can the exploration of history help change those patterns for the future?

The conference is organized by the Belgian Collective for the Prevention of Crimes of Genocide and Against Negationisms in partnership with the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU Europe), the research unit on political life of the Free University of Brussels (Cevipol), the International Roma Youth Network (Ternype) and the European Union Jewish Students (EUJS).
