Vahakn N. Dadrian

“In the 1970s, Vahakn N. Dadrian helped to create the field of the Comparative Study of Genocide, bringing to his work an interdisciplinary perspective that joined sociology, history and law, enriched further by his ability to draw upon half a dozen languages. He is also the foremost scholar of the Armenian Genocide, having devoted more than 30 years to research on virtually every aspect of it.

 

“The culmination of his work is the book published in 1995 on The History of the Armenian Genocide. It is a rare work, over 20 years in the making, that is at once fascinating to read, comprehensive in scope, and unsurpassed in the documentation of the events it describes.”

—Roger W. Smith, Professor of Government, College of William and Mary,

Williamsburg, Virginia

 

“Of all the conflicting and contradictory literature on the subject, including many Turkish publications denying, justifying or explaining what happened, Dadrian’s article is the most legally convincing and from other accounts, the closest to historical accuracy with such debated facts.”

—M.C. Bassiouni, Distinguished Research Professor of Law Emeritus and President Emeritus of the International Human Rights Institute, De Paul University, Chicago; President of the International Institute of Higher Studies in Criminal Sciences, Siracusa, Italy; Honorary President of the International Association of Penal Law in Paris, France.

 

“It is interesting to note that Dadrian’s essential data relative to the [operations of the] Special Organization (Teşhkilâtı Mahsusa) stem from Turkish sources… I should like to go on record saying that Dadrian is a serious researcher, and his work to an enviable degree is anchored on documents, clearly, the end-result of years of hard work.”

—Selim Deringil, Professor of History, Boğaziçi University, Istanbul.

 

          VAHAKN N. DADRIAN
          BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

Vahakn N. Dadrian re-ceived his undergraduate edu-cation in Europe at the University of Berlin (mathe-matics), the University of Vienna (history) and the University of Zürich (inter-national law). He received his Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Chicago.

His academic background includes affiliations with Harvard University as a Research Fellow, the Massa-chusetts Institute of Tech-nology as a Guest Professor, and Duke University as a Visiting Professor.

In the last twenty years he has lectured extensively in French, English and German in such institutions as the Free University of Berlin and the Universities of Munich, Parma, Torino, Zürich, Uppsala, Frankfurt am Main, Cologne, Bochum, Münster, Amster-dam, Utrecht, Geneva, Brussels, UNESCO’s Paris center, and the U.N. in New York under the sponsorship of the Permanent Missions of Armenia and Rwanda. He was the keynote speaker at the centennial of the John Marshall Law School, along with the renowned legal scholar, M.C. Bassiouni.

    

Professor Dadrian was the first Armenian scholar invited in 1995 to the British Parl-iament, House of Commons, to deliver a lecture commem-orating the 80th anniversary of the Armenian genocide. In 1998, in a special ceremony, he was inducted into the ranks of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia. At the same time, he was decorated by that republic’s president with the Khorenatzi Medal, Armenia’s highest cultural award, and in May 2009, he was honored with the Republic’s highest award, the President’s Prize of a Gold Medal.

    

His groundbreaking re-search has been supported by two large grants from the National Science Foundation, resulting in the publication of two separate monographs by the Yale Journal of Inter-national Law.

    

One of them is a legal analysis of the Armenian genocide from the perspective of international law; the other, published in 1998, examines within the same perspective the comparative aspects of the Armenian and Jewish cases of genocide.

    

Following a series of specifically arranged lectures in Armenia in April 2005 commemorating the 90th anniversary of the Armenian genocide, Prof. Dadrian was declared Honorary Professor by two universities in Armenia. Additionally, he received three gold medals, one of which was presented by the Rector of Yerevan State University, and the other by the President of Yerevan’s Law School—both of them being the highest awards of these institutions.

    

The International Associ-ation of Genocide Scholars, during its Sixth Biennial Conference, June 4-7, 2005, bestowed on him its Lifetime Achievement Award—the first ever granted. In May 2005, he was chosen as a recipient of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor.

     

After serving as Professor of Sociology at the State University of New York from 1970 to 1991, Dadrian shifted his academic career to conducting research full-time on the Armenian Genocide. For several years he was engaged as Director of a large Genocide Study Project sponsored by the H.F. Guggenheim Foundation. The project’s first major achieve-ment was the publication, now in its seventh printing, of an extensive volume titled The History of the Armenian Genocide: Ethnic Conflict from the Balkans to Anatolia to the Caucasus. This work has appeared in numerous languages. Another major work, German Responsibility in the Armenian Genocide: A Review of Historical Evi-dence of German Complicity, was published in 1996 and is now in its third edition. His next book, Warrant for Genocide: The Key Elements of the Turko-Armenian Conflict, appeared in 1999, the same year as Key Elements of the Turkish Denial of the Armenian Genocide. His most recent book, Judgment at Istanbul, appearing in 2011, is a massive legal and historical study of the post-WWI Turkish Military Tribunals on the Armenian Genocide.

          

Professor Dadrian has been Director of Genocide Re-search at the Zoryan Institute since 1999.
