Meeting young researchers in Armenia

Nigar Göksel traveled to Armenia for a week in mid November where she met with young researchers who have started to work with ESI to produce portraits depicting change in the country. She traveled to Gyumri and Ijevan and gave a talk on how Turkey has changed through EU integration at a conference titled "Armenia's and Turkey's Regional Interests in the Context of Two States Aspirations for European Integration."
