Gyumri and Kars: the total flight distance between the two cities is 66.7 km. However, it takes at least a 340 km drive to get from Gyumri, Armenia to Kars, Turkey via Georgia.
Armenia-Turkey relations still remain an unresolved issue. The governments of the two countries tried to make certain efforts to this end, but eventually failed because the authorities and societies were not ready. Ongoing efforts should be made to enable the societies of the two countries to know each other better and diminish adverse feelings towards each other generated as a result of historical events and years of intensive propaganda against the neighboring country.
History Education in Schools in Turkey and Armenia - A Critique and Alternatives
Analyzing a country’s history education model can give profound insights into a society’s prevailing attitudes towards and perceptions of diversity, justice, peace, and democracy. In conflict and post-conflict contexts, such an analysis can also shed light onto how ways of constructing historical narratives may act as one of the underlying drivers of conflict within and between societies. Many works have been published on how conflict narratives in history education and textbooks, as well as conflict-promoting teaching methodologies and extracurricular activities, may contribute to the formation of monolithic nationalist identities ensued by antagonistic and hostile attitudes, rhetoric, and actions towards groups and communities considered as the “other”.
The brochure presents excerpts from the essays to be published in the book Negotiation of Differences in the Shared Urban Space. The book has been developing in the framework of the project sharing the same title.

Public Memory Report - Nareg Seferian
The debates and tensions that very often characterize the interactions between the Turkish and Armenian peoples do not easily fit into frameworks adopted by studies of international affairs. One problem is that of identifying specific actors: states, diasporas, community-level and international organizations, religious bodies, individuals, broader regional or global players and trends. A second problem is identifying what is at stake: moral, ethical, or religious principles, core hard power interests, legal disputes, economic calculations. The complexity of the case challenges any single approach to analysis but at the same time offers the opportunity for multiple points of view to bring forward meaningful insights. This study uses narratives as a source and as a method.
