A NOBEL LAUREATE DANCES WITH GENOCIDERS(25.09.2017)

A nobel laureate dances with genociders

World leaders had expected Aung San Suu Kyi to speak for humanity as a Nobel Peace Laureate and to stop violence against Rohingyas. But in her much-anticipated speech on Tuesday, she spoke as a politician as she likes to be seen herself to retain the power without annoying the military. Those who were frustrated by her words she used to defend the indefensible atrocities by the military might have forgotten what she had announced seven years ago. Suu Kyi was showered with praises and awards by the world and portrayed as a human rights icon for her nonviolent struggle for people's rights during the decades of her house arrest by Myanmar military junta. But shortly after...


NO RIGHTS FOR ROHINGYA(8.09.2017)

No rights for Rohingya

This sounds weird but is a reality for Rohingyas. The Myanmar government in May 2013 ordered Rohingyas not to have more than two children to escape from Buddhist attacks on them. The measure has been enacted in Rakhine state following a proposal by a government appointed commission investigating deadly clashes in 2012 between Buddhists monks and Rohingya Muslims. Mobs of Buddhists armed with machetes razed thousands of Rohingya homes, leaving more than one hundred of people dead and forcing 125,000 to flee, mostly Rohingyas from violence."State officials said the two-child limit in the state of Rakhine would ease tensions between Buddhists and their Muslim Rohingya neig...


REFUGEE CRISIS IN SYRIA: GREATEST FEAR OF EU, GREAT HOSPITALITY OF TURKEY(12.04.2017)

Refugee Crisis in Syria: Greatest Fear of EU, Great Hospitality of Turkey

Arab Spring, which started in 2010 and still has prolonged effects, has also penetrated Syria and protests against the regime have turned into a war in a short time. This process has resulted in instability and obscurity both in Syria and around the region. The war in Syria has led millions of Syrians to take refuge in different countries. Undoubtedly, Turkey is one of those main countries. Failure to find an international solution to the current crisis in Syria prognosticates that stability will not be assured for many years and the refugee issue that has world-wide effects will continue to grow. In this paper, we will analyze the refugee issue in terms of International Rela...


NEW ARMENIAN POLICY FOR THE NAGORNO-KARABAKH ISSUE(12.04.2017)

New Armenian policy for the Nagorno-Karabakh issue

Azerbaijan's breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region voted in a referendum to change the presidential powers on February 20. The separatist Nagorno-Karabakh region has strengthened the leader's powers in a referendum that international observers warned was illegal.The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is a territorial and ethnic conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which by de-facto, is Armenian-controlled by the self-declared Nagorno-Karabakh regime. Yet, it is internationally recognized as an inseparable part of Azerbaijan.The conflict has its origins in the early 20th century, although the present conflict began in 1988 and escalated into a f...


OBSERVING HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST(13.02.2017)

Observing Human Rights in the Middle East

It becomes evident when traveling in war zones and isolated areas that the most vulnerable in such places are women and young children.In January, on a train bound from Mashhad, Iran, to Tabriz, I met a woman who looked to be in her 30s. Her name was Amir Nedai.Amir and I were sharing a 4-bed passenger cubicle with another couple from Iran; on a ride that would take 24 hours until our destination. Unlike Amir’s short stature, her husband was quite tall. He must not have liked the idea that his wife would be in the same cubicle with a foreign man (he and Amir were placed in different sections), because when he came inside our room, he did not even greet me.It felt ...
