3154) Psychological Dimension Of The Armenian Question By Assist Prof Dr Deniz ALTINBAS

© This content Mirrored From  http://armenians-1915.blogspot.com Abstract: The political, diplomatic, historical, sociological and legal aspects of the problem known as the “Armenian question” is being researched and analysed from different points of view. However, the psychological dimension which is the most important field in solving the problem is lacking. The paper deals . . with the past traumas and psychological situations of all the parties: Armenians of Armenia, Armenian diaspora, Turkish Armenians, Turkish people who defend the Turkish “official view”, Turks who apologise from the Armenians claiming that they feel guilty, and the Western world which puts pressure on Turkey. As it is defended that the basis of the problem lies in psychology, the solution is not focusing on the future, but on overcoming the past traumas.
