(English, German, French, and Italian), making it easily available to the researchers and general 
public across the world.  

Some of the past and current topics of Mr. Kaiser's research include: 
'Imperialism, Racism, and Development Theories. 
The Construction of a Dominant Paradigm on Ottoman Armenians' (published by Gomidas Institute); 

'The Baghdad Railway and the Armenian Genocide, 1915-1916. A Case Study in German Resistance and Complicity, in, 
Remembrance and Denial. The Case of the Armenian Genocide' (edited by Professor Richard Hovannisian);
