This will be complemented by excursions – e.g. to Edjmiatsin, the religious centre of the country and a conversation with an apostolic priest – as well as a meeting with an environmental protection organisation and representatives of civil society.

The application deadline for participation – and also for a DAAD scholarship – is 12 May 2019.
