Haigazian University and the Armenian National Committee of the Middle
East will be hosting a conference entitled "The Armenian Genocide
and International Law", which will be held in two consecutive days,
September 3 & 4, 2009 at Haigazian University, Beirut, Lebanon.

This academic conference will cover new research on the Armenian
Genocide and will provide perspectives on genocide denial, the
genocide convention and international law. As such, the conference
will cover a time span of a hundred years and a geographic arena that
goes beyond contemporary Turkey. The conference is unprecedented in
the Middle East, as it will bring together leading experts in the
field of Genocide Studies and International Law.

The proceedings of the conference will be later published and
distributed to academic circles and research institutes, the
University's official website reports.
