In honor of this year’s Human Rights Day, the Institute of Politics and Carr Center for Human Rights Policy spread awareness of the 1915-1923 Armenian genocide in Turkey by hosting a screening of the documentary Aghet: Nation Murder and a discussion on how international relations have prevented wider recognition of the incident. Panelists Eric Friedler, director of the film, Carr Center Executive Director Charlie Clements, and President of the Syriac League of Lebanon Habib Afram, focus on the genocide’s recognition in the world and its relationship to other human rights issues such as China’s denial of Liu Xiaobo’s Nobel Peace Prize in 2010.
