This infographic and the related publication summarize the key results of the EU funded Support to Armenia-Turkey Normalization Process Programme, which started in January 2014 and completed in June 2015. The 20 different activities implemented by 8 organizations from Armenia and Turkey either independently or in partnership with each other reached out to more than 10,000 people across the border.
People to people contacts were enhanced through travel grants to 200 individuals. Several workshops, training sessions, cultural events, business forums and exchange visits engaged around 2000 direct participants including journalists, photographers, artists, art historians, filmmakers, entrepreneurs and others. The programme supported 11 new actors to implement their contributions to the normalization process.
See the infographic and booklet below for the results of individual projects.
Ms. Arpine Aleksanyan and Ms. Sona Baloyan from Yerevan, from “Matenadaran” Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, were supported with the travel grant to visit Istanbul, Turkey for meetings with the Armenian Patriarchate, Armenian high schools, foundations and publishing houses to discuss possibilities of further collaboration on preserving the Armenian culture.
