The workshop was organized as part of the ‘Post-Coup Opportunities on Conflict Resolution and Democracy’ project, managed by Pınar Akpınar, which aims to identify what can be done to harness post-coup dynamics to help address the Kurdish issue and polarization in Turkey; and, influence policy-makers to adopt those recommendations. The project provides a platform to increase awareness and enhance dialogue through conflict identification, analysis and resolution by conducting field research, organizing workshops, analysing data, promoting discussion, and disseminating information.
