Etyen Mahçupyan (born 1950 in Istanbul) is a Turkish-Armenian journalist and writer. From 2007 to 2010 he was the editor-in-chief of Agos, the Armenian community's weekly newspaper. He also contributes to the Turkish national dailies Sabah and Yeni safak.

Etyen Mahçupyan was born in Istanbul and attended Robert College. He continued his studies at Boğaziçi University where he attained a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering. Mahçupyan then studied at Ankara University’s School of Political Sciences for a MA in International Economics.[1] Realizing that earning a living would entail working under a manager, he studied business management, and finance—to get ahead, professionally and intellectually. He learned the Armenian language in primary school.[2]

On October 2014, he was appointed as the Senior Advisor to Ahmet Davutoglu the Prime Minister of Turkey from the liberal-conservative AKP.[3]

Mahçupyan resigned from his post as the Senior Advisor. The resignation came a day after he openly acknowledged the Armenian Genocide.[4]

Personal life
