Turkish-Armenian issue’s effect on global affairs to be discussed on April 26

The final Global Affairs Table of the semester will consider why, after nearly a century, the dispute over mass deaths of Armenians at the end of World War I remains an explosive issue in international affairs.

The guest speaker will be Phil Gamaghelyan, a 2006 graduate of the master’s degree program in coexistence and conflict. Gamaghelyan founded, and is now co-director, of the Imagine Center for Conflict Transformation, an NGO dedicated to positively transforming inter-group relations and laying foundations for lasting and sustainable peace in conflict-torn societies.

The event will take place Monday, April 26 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the Lurias Conference Room of Hassenfeld Conference Center (Upper Sherman). Box lunches will be provided, but attendance is limited to preserve the “lunch table discussion” environment. Reservations are required.

The Global Affairs table is a project of Gen Ed Now and the Wien International Scholarship Program, which is dedicated to furthering international understanding, providing foreign students an opportunity to study in the United States, and enhancing the lives of all students at Brandeis. More than 800 students from over 100 countries have come to Brandeis as Wien Scholars.
