The sixth Workshop on Armenian Turkish Scholarship

From 26 February to 1st March 2008, CIMERA organized the 6e Workshop Armenian Turkish Scholarship (WATS), which took place at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. The sixth workshop was dedicated to the centenary of the 1908 Young Turk revolution, with the title: "Revisiting Ideologies and Revolutionary Practice in the Late Ottoman Empire". The workshop brought together during four days twenty-five international and Swiss scholars researching on Armenian-Turkish history.

In the framework of this event, CIMERA organized on 28 February a public conference "The Politics of Memory: a path to reconciliation?".
Programme en francais, English program

The WATS conference cycle was launched by three Armenian and Turkish history professors in the year 2000 to allow for a common historical research of the Turkish-Armenian past, in particular on the period of the First World War. Today, WATS is the most successful and long-standing dialogue dealing with the delicate question of the Turkish-Armenian past and is recognized as a highly important event to build bridges and work towards finding historic truth as the way for reconciliation. For more info on the WATS:

The event was organized thanks to the financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Canton and the City of Geneva, and with the logistical support of the Graduate Institute-Geneva.
