CfA: NGO representatives for the project “Common Remembrance, Future Relations”

Project Summary

The burden of the past and blind spots in the construction of national historical truths often manifest in obstacles to intergovernmental cooperation. However, the mutual exchange of societies’ experiences and their understanding of past events can facilitate processes of remembrance, reappraisal and reconciliation. The project connects  NGOs and guides a structured exchange of the culture of remembrance as well as memorial practices in Armenia, France, Germany, Israel and Turkey. Its goals are to reduce images of the other, to initiate reciprocal learning processes in remembrance, commemoration and reconciliation work, and to foster intercultural cooperation by planning and launching collaborative projects.

Applicaton

IFAIR is looking for 20 representatives from NGOs. They should work in the field of remembrance culture or international political dialogue,  live and/or work in Armenia, France, Germany, Israel and Turkey and have experience in project management.
