Conflict Transformation in the Middle East and Europe

CTMEE is a European Commission funded project that began in June 2012 as a partnership between Coventry University, Kadir Has University and the Arab American University in Jenin. The goal of the project is to jointly explore what types of conflict transformation mechanisms are being utilised in Turkey and Palestine and how these mechanisms engage with understandings and practices of conflict transformation in Europe. A prominent sub-theme in CTMEE is the role of youth in conflict transformation, which is motivated by demographic youth bulges and recent political conflict in both Turkey and Palestine. CTMEE research is investigating how youth can play a constructive role in peacebuilding in both contexts.
