ARMENIAN GENOCIDE​

Since its inception in 2002 the European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy (or EAFJD) has been advocating for the condemnation and recognition of the Armenian Genocide by various European states and institutions. Through its continuous active advocacy of more than a decade the Federation prepared a fertile soil and significantly contributed to the adoption of the resolution on the centenary of the Genocide by the European Parliament (EP) on 15. April, 2015.

With this resolution the European Parliament officially recognizes and condemns the Armenian Genocide and “in the spirit of European solidarity and justice … pays tribute to the memory of 1,5 million innocent Armenian victims, who perished in the Ottoman Empire”. The European Parliament also calls on Turkey to come to terms with its past, fulfil its obligations to the protection of Armenian cultural heritage in the country and pave a way for a genuine reconciliation. In its annual report on human rights adopted in March 2015, the EP also encourages the EU Member states and institutions to contribute further to the recognition of the Armenian Genocide…

In Karabakh, Armenians defended themselves and in 1991, declared the formation of the Mountainous Karabakh Republic. A just and lasting resolution of the Karabakh conflict should guarantee security and viability for Karabakh and Armenia.

The European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy has always defended the right of the people of the Republic of Mountainous Karabakh (MKR) to determine their own destiny. The European Parliament, in a resolution adopted on 7 July 1988…

As a grassroots organization, representing a significant part of the Armenian diaspora in Europe, the EAFJD is engaged in a continuous dialogue with the EU decision-makers, in particular with the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). The organization frequently holds informative meetings with European parliamentarians in order to sensitize them on the concerns of its supporters and chapters across Europe, the current developments in Armenia as well as in the region of the South Caucasus in general…
