EAFJD's Position on the Armenian Genocide
European Armenians have always pursued the International recognition of the Armenian Genocide. Their coordinated efforts pushed the European Parliament to adopt its first “Resolution on a political solution to the Armenian Question” in 1987, demanding the recognition of the Genocide by Turkey.
For 15 years, the EAFJD has been advocating the condemnation and recognition of the Armenian Genocide by all European parliaments and various European institutions. EAFJD contributed to the adoption of the European Parliament Resolution on the Centenary of the Armenian Genocide in April 2015 which recognizes and condemns the Armenian Genocide, urging Turkey to come to terms with its past and pave way for genuine reconciliation.
EAFJD regularly organizes various events, such as conferences, debates, exhibitions and film-screenings to sensitize the European public about the Armenian Genocide.
