Institute for Armenian Research (Ermeni Araştırmaları Enstitüsü; EREN) is a privately funded think tank in Turkey established in April 2001 by the nationalist Center for Eurasian Strategic Studies.[1][2] Ömer Engin Lütem is the chairman.[citation needed]

Jay Winter, Charles J. Stille Professor of History at Yale, describes the organisation and its role in the denial of the Armenian Genocide as follows:[3]

In order to institutionalize this campaign of denial and try to invest it with an aura of legitimacy, a "think-tank" was established in Ankara in April 2001. Operating under the name "Institute for Armenian Research" as a subsidiary of The Center For Eurasian Studies, with a staff of nine, this new outfit is now proactively engaged in contesting all claims of genocide by organizing a series of conferences, lectures, and interviews, and above all, through the medium of publications, including a quarterly.


The Institute for Armenian Research organized two conferences in Turkey, bringing together academics specialising in Armenia and the Armenian Diaspora, in April 2002[6] and in 2004.[citation needed]
