Three-year Horizon 2020 Project 'Disputed Territories and Memory'
2019-2022 Bath, UK
Disputed Territories and Memory (DisTerrMem) is a three-year EU-funded Horizon 2020 project in which an international team of researchers from six organisations will collaborate to explore the management of competing memories of disputed territories across borders.
Working across three key regions (Europe, South Asia and the South Caucasus), the project will explore the roles of civil society groups, cultural practitioners, nation states and regional organisations in managing such memories, and will culminate in the development of a new and innovative model for understanding the successful management of competing memories in non-conflictual ways in the context of peace-building.
The project is led by the University of Bath (UK), in collaboration with five partner NGOs and universities: University of Warsaw (Poland), Borderland Foundation (Poland), National Academy of Sciences (Armenia), Education & Cultural Bridges (Armenia) and Forman Christian College (Pakistan).
