The Armenian Legal Center for Justice and Human Rights (ALC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nongovernmental organization.

 

ALC fights to redress human rights violations emanating from the Armenian Genocide that continue to this day and undermine stability in a region that has for far too long been marred by policies founded on genocide, not based upon human rights and justice.

 

Through legal and educational initiatives, in addition to documentation, ALC will address the geo-political, territorial and macro-economic implications of the Republic of Turkey’s responsibility for the Armenian Genocide, including those related to the Western Armenian homeland, the payment of reparations to the Republic of Armenia and relevant Diasporan stakeholders, and the future of the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh, whose independent status and regional security today face challenges in the international arena, in large measure, due to the Armenian Genocide.  

 

Parallel to its international legal activity, the Center will focus on justice-based solutions to the vast array of collective properties and other assets stolen or confiscated as a result of genocide, including those related to churches, religious sites, foundations, schools, museums, artwork, artifacts, books and other cultural heritage.
