Alper Ecevit from Istanbul, from Bahçeşehir University EU Affairs Department, was supported with the Armenia-Turkey travel grant to visit Yerevan, Armenia for meeting experts and academics for his research about the Armenia-Turkey border.

“During my visit to Armenia I realized that the low level of diplomatic relations between two countries is getting more and more nonsense for me if we take into consideration the high level of interaction of history between two societies. During my one week stay in Yerevan, I felt that the problems between two countries are likely to be resolved with increasing the people to people contact. I can definitely say that Yerevan will be a stop that I will pass by in the future few more times.”
