This article presents a critical analysis of the general “conflict resolution” approach for improving Turkish-Armenian relations, the latter of which completely broke apart as a result of the Ottoman Turk Genocide of the Armenians (1915-1923). In doing so, it examines past and present Armenian-Turkish relations underlying the approach. Ultimately, the author argues that the forms of the “conflict resolution” model typically proposed and pursued cannot address the root causes of the problems inherent in Turkish-Armenian relations and thus cannot succeed in resolving those problems. The author concludes with recommendations that he believes could lead toward a meaningful resolution of the Turkish-Armenian issue over the Armenian Genocide.
