Heghine Manasyan and Hrachia Khazhoyan from Yerevan, members of Caucasus Research Resource Center – Armenia, were supported with the Turkey-Armenia Travel Grant to visit Istanbul to present the findings of the public opinion survey on Normalisation of Armenia-Turkey Relations to researchers, civil society organisations and policy makers in Turkey.
“This travel grant made me a strong believer in possibility of normalisation in the near future if politicians will take into serious consideration attitudes and desires of ordinary citizens in both Armenia and Turkey. People in Turkey and Armenia want to prosper while living in peace, doing business together, talking to each other. Let’s do everything possible to normalise Armenia-Turkey relations.”
“This travel grant has given us the opportunity to meet our colleagues, express and discuss our ideas, and it made us closer.”
