This component aims to form and manage a virtual “Speakers’ Bureau” designed to facilitate sharing and exchange of high-profile figures, including a select group of 12 (retired) politicians and policy makers from Armenia and Turkey (6 per country). These eminent figures will utilise their personal and professional experience.
The activity anticipates public event/speaking tours in Istanbul and Yerevan that will offer a set of policy recommendations to government officials and decision-makers.
The Armenian-language translation of Birgul Oguz’s novel “HAH” from Turkish into Eastern Armenian was published by Antares publishing house, and it is currently available in book stores in Armenia. On December 16-18, 2017, HCA-Armenia hosted Birgul Oguz and the engaged literary translators in Yerevan for a series of promotional events.
