The Armenian national liberation movement was the Armenian socio-political and militant movement to re-establish an Armenian state in the Armenian Highland, controlled at the time by the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Empire. It aimed at the establishment of an Armenian state. It included social, cultural, but primarily political and military movements that reached their height during World War I and the following years. During World War I, the Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire were systematically exterminated by the government killing as many as 1,500,000—2,000,000 Armenians. The modern The Armenian National Movement, also known as the Armenian Pan-National Movement, was founded in 1989.

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
