by Dr. Suren Manukyan, Kazan Visiting Professor at Fresno State

On the lowest level of the extermination “ordinary” murderers participated in the killings, advantaging of the atmosphere of impunity entertaining the general popular support. Carrying out genocide is impossible without the large participation of masses. Privates, volunteers conscribed to the paramilitary detachments of Teşkilat-i Mahsuse, gendarmerie officers, criminals released from prisons, doctors, peasants, students, Kurds, refugees from the Balkans, i.e. almost every group of the society took part in
the process of annihilating Armenians.

Dr. Suren Manukyan is the Head of the UNESCO Chair on Prevention of Genocide and Other Atrocity Crimes at Yerevan State University and Head of the Department of Comparative Genocide Studies at the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute (Yerevan).
He is also a Visiting lecturer at the American University of Armenia. He has been a Fulbright Scholar at the Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights at the Rutgers University of New Jersey.
Dr. Manukyan has extensive experience with the International Association of Genocide Scholars, including as a member of the IAGS Resolutions’ committee (2015-2017) and a member of the Advisory Board (2017-2021). He is the author of many articles on genocide studies, among them several articles on perpetrators, mass participation, and dehumanization.
