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.
Talk show with Aron Aji, Director of MFA in Literary Translation Program at the University of Iowa (USA) and the president of the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA).
