One of the projects, financed by the Grant Scheme within the framework of the programme Support to the Armenia-Turkey Normalisation Process is “Negotiation of Differences in the Common Urban Space”. The project aims at collecting articles, each written by different authors with various professions, for the blog “Shared Urban Space” and inviting the readers to share their own comments, remarks and critiques.
Later on, in the light of all the feedback received, the articles will be revised and published in the form of essays devoted to experiences of Armenians and Turks of sharing common urban space and their practices of negotiation of cultural, historical and political differences.
