The Center for Truth and Justice invites you to the First Annual International Conference on Human Rights to be held in Yerevan, Armenia, June 1-3, 2022. The Conference is hosted at the American University of Armenia.
Please join us in person or virtually by registering for this first-of-its-kind international conference to bring together scholars, survivors, and activists in the field of accountability for crimes and gross human rights violations during and after the 44-day war in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), and Armenia.
Scholars and law experts from 16 different countries will be joining us. See below for the tentative program, which will be updated regularly.
Due to COVID-19 and travel restrictions, some of our speakers will be presenting virtually, and are designated with (V) in the program. Panels have been scheduled to best accommodate the various time zones.
REGISTRATION is required whether you attend in person, or virtually.
English and Armenian interpretation will be provided to all those attending in person or virtually.
Keep up to date with everything that is happening at CFTJ as we continue to collect and preserve evidence of gross human rights violations.
Center for Truth and Justice (CFTJ) is an independent nonprofit organization. To maintain our autonomy, we take no money from governments and rely solely on support from private contributors. Your donation will help fund our mission and enable us to continue meeting our goals.
The Center for Truth and Justice was founded to preserve testimonials following the 2020 war in Nagorno-Karabakh, known as Artsakh by Armenians.
Our team is comprised of attorneys and law students in the US, Armenia, and Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as human rights advocates and other professionals dedicated to amplifying the voice of Armenians affected by discrimination, ethnic cleansing, displacement, war crimes, mass atrocities and genocide.
The Center for Truth and Justice collects eyewitness testimonies from survivors of the 2020 Artsakh war. The Center educates and trains teams in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh on evidence-based interview techniques, compliant with international legal standards.
We preserve evidence and make it accessible for current or future proceedings, whether in Armenia or abroad.
The mission of the Center for Truth and Justice is to be a living memorial to crimes against humanity. By being a permanent home for testimonials, the Center serves to make eyewitness accounts available for study, education, and legal action in order to foster education, empathy, justice and change.
