The NCWA continues the mission of the Worldwide Armenians to resolve the Armenian Question in its Western and Eastern Armenian aspects, i.e. to eliminate the social, economic, and cultural consequences of the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923 and to seek political resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh issue in the context of the restoration of the territorial integrity of Armenia, violated by the Turkish and Soviet aggression in 1920-1921.
The ultimate goal of the NCWA is to advance the human rights, social justice, civil liberties and democratic values for all and to enhance the well-being of the Armenian communities, including in the Republic of Armenia, Artsakh, Armenian Diaspora and the Republic of Turkey. Given this, the NCWA sets out to achieve the following objectives:
Restore the rights and protect the interests of Western Armenians – the descendants of Armenian citizens of the Ottoman Empire and inheritors of the victims and survivors of the Medz Yeghern. Seek justice for the systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians and atrocities committed against the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire that constitutes crimes against humanity and civilization that are not subject to the statute of limitations and can be prosecuted regardless of when the crimes occurred and whether committed during times of war or peace. Seek reparations for the human, moral, material, and land losses caused to the Armenian nation during the forced deportations and decimation of the Armenian population. Facilitate organized repatriation of Western Armenians to their historical homeland and foster reconciliation between Armenian and Turkish civil societies.
Advocate recognition of the territorial integrity of Armenia, violated by the Turkish and Bolshevik aggression and consequent partition of Armenia by the totalitarian Soviet regime, within the boundaries of the Republic of Armenia and liberated, de-facto controlled Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh). Promote the removal of the Turkish blockade of the Republic of Armenia and facilitate the normalization of the Armenian-Turkish relationships without preconditions.
