Dr. Maria Koinova on US House Recognition of Armenian Genocide

When Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited the White House on November 13, 2019 he said a landmark resolution passed by the House of Representatives in October recognising the Armenian genocide had “hurt deeply the Turkish nation”, and had the “potential to cast a deep shadow over our bilateral relations”.

This article by Dr. Maria Koinova in The Conversation discusses how the Armenian diaspora, preoccupied with issues of genocide recognition, became instrumental in passing this resolution in the US, and building coalitions with other ethnic groups to advocate globally.

Publication on Latin American security

Tom Long and Sebastian Bitar published a new entry on "International Security in Latin America," for the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Latin American Politics. The chapter surveys the state of the field relating to Latin American security, including topics such as state security, transnational organized crime, high homicide rates, borders, and more. In the region, "isolated state responses are insufficient to respond to transnational dynamics; although some coordination has been achieved, intergovernmental responses have produced limited gains and substantial unintended consequences." The piece emerged from collaboration during Dr Bitar's visit as an IAS in 2018; Dr Bitar is an associate professor at Universidad de los Andes, Bogota, Colombia.

The piece is available here: https://oxfordre.com/politics/view/10.1093/acrefore/9780190228637.001.0001/acrefore-9780190228637-e-1735
