Armenians in Turkey

Hratch Tchilingirian (2016) "The 'Other' Citizens: Armenians in Turkey Between Isolation and (Dis)integration", Journal of the Society for Armenian Studies, Vol. 25, 2016: 123-155.

Since the establishment of the Turkish Republic, state discrimination against the Armenian community—and generally the non-Muslim minorities—has been institutionalized and systematically used towards the detriment of the target community. This article provides a discussion of these issues and the processes of state and societal ‘othering’ of the Armenians in Turkey, with a particular focus on the impact of such policies and public discourses on the current situation of the community.  It then provides an analysis of the internal dynamics of the Armenian community itself.  The discussion highlights several sociological concepts that are useful to the understanding and analysis of the Turkish state’s and society’s treatment of the Armenians in Turkey today—or what the economists would call the stresses and distortions in the system.

L’Eglise arménienne pendant la guerre froide

Hratch Tchilingirian (2016) “L’Eglise arménienne pendant la guerre froide : la crise Etchmiadzine-Antelias”, NH Hebdo, 9 Juin.

l’Eglise Arménienne, en tant qu’institution religieuse, a été affectée à des fonctions « laïques » ou civiles pour « conduire la nation », alors que le clergé était devenu un agent et un médiateur mandatés par l’Etat entre les dirigeants, les gouvernements et les intérêts politiques. Dans le même temps, la société arménienne, en Arménie comme dans la diaspora, avait traversé un processus de sécularisation du fait d’un rationalisme et d’une modernité émergents, ce qui s’est traduit par le capitalisme, l’industrialisation et l’Etat-Nation. Ces développements historiques ont conduit l’Eglise arménienne à une sécularisation.

Hratch Tchilingirian (2007) "Hrant Dink and Armenians in Turkey" in David Hayes (ed,) Turkey: Writers, Politics and Free Speech, OpenDemocracy Quarterly, Series 1; Vol. 2

(in French)

The assassination of the Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink on 19 January 2007 and its aftermath highlighted both change and resistance to change in Turkish society. To understand how far Turkey has travelled in the past generation, this article examines the role of Hrant Dink himself in the context of the Armenian community of which he was voice, critic, and emblem.
