Kurdistan Diaspora Conference in Lausanne Analyzes Lausanne Treaty's Impact on Kurds

Kurdistan Diaspora Conference in Lausanne Analyzes Lausanne Treaty's Impact on Kurds

Conference Aims to Bridge Differences and Foster Peaceful Coexistence on 100th Anniversary of Lausanne Treaty

Lausanne, Switzerland - The Kurdish Diaspora Center in Switzerland, in collaboration with the Kurdistan Diaspora Confederation, is set to organize an international conference in Lausanne on May 27 and 28.

The conference, which coincides with the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Lausanne Treaty in 1923, aims to address the historical oversight of the Kurdish nation's rights and explore the lasting impact of the treaty. With participants from various backgrounds, including academics, political representatives, and friends of the Kurdish people, the conference seeks to establish a dialogue of peace and coexistence among different stakeholders.

The Lausanne Treaty, signed a century ago, failed to recognize the rights of the Kurdish nation and several other nations and minorities. This unresolved issue has perpetuated conflict and strife in the region. In response, the Kurdistan Diaspora Center, under the auspices of the Kurdistan Diaspora Confederation, has taken the initiative to organize this international conference.

During the two-day event, attendees will engage in panel discussions, academic presentations, and interactive sessions aimed at fostering a deeper understanding of the Kurdish perspective. The conference will serve as a platform for participants to study the consequences of the Lausanne Treaty on the Kurdish people, paying tribute to the past hundred years.

The Confederation of Kurdistan Diaspora hopes that the conference will promote inclusivity, dialogue, and mutual respect among all parties involved. By bringing together diverse viewpoints, the organizers aspire to bridge differences and advocate for the recognition of the Kurdish nation's rights, ultimately working towards a peaceful coexistence.

Speaking about the conference, from Kurdish Diaspora Center in Switzerland, Soran Hassan, emphasized the importance of commemorating the past hundred years and initiating a dialogue of peace and coexistence. The conference aims to create an environment where participants can engage in open and honest discussions, fostering understanding and collaboration.

The international conference is expected to attract significant attention from scholars, activists, and policymakers from around the world. It marks an important milestone in the ongoing quest for justice and recognition of the rights of the Kurdish people, who have long endured the consequences of the Lausanne Treaty.

As the conference approaches, anticipation grows for the meaningful exchanges and insights that will emerge from this unique gathering in Lausanne. The hope is that through the shared dialogue and understanding, a path towards reconciliation and lasting peace can be forged.
