The symposium on the Armenian Genocide in Ankara was supposed to be held on April 24-25, but was  canceled earlier this week due to political tension with finding a venue. The organizers are now saying the conference will take place as scheduled.

Dedicated to the memory of Hrant Dink, the symposium will comprise of four sessions: a) the Armenian Genocide from a historical perspective, b) official ideological denial from the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP) to Kemalism, c) Turkification of the Economy and the issue of the confiscated Armenian Property, and d) what needs to be done and how?

Participants include publishers, authors, writers, activists, historians and professors. It is not clear at this point if those scheduled to attend, will be able to make it to the conference on such short notice.
