Yale Journal of International Law Issues Dadrian Genocide Study

One of the world’s most prominent law journals–"Yale Journal of International Law," in its summer 1998 issue–vol. 23–is carrying a major study on the Armenian genocide authored by renowned Armenian expert–Prof. Vahakn Dadrian.

Now in press–and due to appear shortly–the study is titled–"The Historical and Legal Interconnections between the Armenian Genocide and the Jewish Holocaust: From Impunity to Retributive Justice."

In a telephone conversation with Asbarez–Prof. Dadrian explained that his most recent study was one of utmost importance to addressing the genocide within the framework of international law–adding that the article has already received wide interest within the academic community.

In this groundbreaking analysis of the two foremost genocide’s of the 20th century–Prof. Dadrian utilizes historical data to establish the legal interconnections between the two genocides. Focusing on two principles–prevention and punishment–around which revolves the UN Convention on Genocide–Prof. Dadrian examines in detail two fundamental facts surrounding the two genocides: 1) The reasons why the two genocides could not have been prevented; 2) The conditions under which the Armenian genocide remained unrecognized and unpunished while the Jewish Holocaust was met with retributive justice.

The 252 references within the 60-page Article have been verified by the staff of the journal. As noted by the Editors verified by an independent translator hired by the "Yale Journal of International Law."
