As a scholar at the Turkish Coalition of America
(TCA), and in collaboration with the Turkish American Legal Defense Fund
, Fein actively participates in the Armenian-Turkish dispute with regard to their shared history and denies
the Armenian Genocide
constituted a genocide.
Bruce Fein has penned more than one column on the topic, including in The Washington Times
and The Huffington Post
As opposed to the International Association of Genocide Scholars
, Fein asserts that the fate of Armenians during the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I
should not be characterized as a genocide, arguing that racial, ethnic or religious motivation for the deaths cannot be proven and that a 'political or military motivation for a death falls outside the definition.' 
He argued: "Armenian casualties from starvation, disease, and Ottoman Muslim killings were painfully high, perhaps 300,000-600,000. [...] The tragic Armenian losses and suffering deserve sympathy and commemoration, but no more so than their Ottoman Muslim counterparts."
