The normalisation and development of Turkey's relations with its 'most distant' neighbour Armenia is the aim of the Foundation. The Foundation's work in this field is based on the principle that can be described as 'the border first opens in our minds'. As the Hrant Dink Foundation, we encourage direct contact in all fields between the two countries in collaboration with the civil society of both countries, independent of the political developments. We believe that civil society is the real determining element in the dynamics of the relations and we foresee the consolidation of this civic pressure.
