Turkey Will Never Recognize the Armenian Genocide, Foreign Policy, June, 2021
Professor of Practice David Wood and Hans Gutbrod argue in Foreign Policy that Armenia and the Armenian diaspora should reframe the genocide – and the wider suffering that accompanied the end of the Ottoman Empire – as a shared history, with a shift in diplomacy to encourage engagement by Turkish society. Surveying has shown that a majority of Turkish people would be willing to explore their troubled past if it were reframed inclusively. This ethical approach to political remembrance, while difficult, has a greater chance of success, would be good for Armenia, and would be good for Armenian-Turkish relationships.

Reconciliation through the media
The Center is supporting ongoing media work on COVID-19 in Libya through the Health Diplomacy in Libya project. This media work has the purpose of building public support for a national response to COVID-19 across the conflict divide. The We Are All Responsible Network members bring together health care workers from all parts of the country. The Network's weekly Scientific Information sessions and Best Practice Case Study sessions have been effective at providing needed information on the current conditions on the ground, as a contribution to efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19.
This important work has attracted national Libyan media stations on both sides of the political divide to broadcast stories on the efforts of the We Are All Responsible Network. Network members have held over 20 media interviews in support of national unity of the healthcare sector and in combating Covid-19. They have appeared multiple times on Libya TV (Bel Merssd), Al-Hadath (Al-Hadath) and Al Wasat (Hadaa al Masaa). Particularly critical to highlight is the representation of the Network members from all parts of Libya on both Western and Eastern media programs, presenting a united front in building bridges across conflict divides.
