Caucasus Center of Peacemaking InitiativeWritten by Zamira
I am Zamira from Azerbaijan and Armenia. I was born in one but raised in another. Both countries are in conflict for more than 20 years now, Millions of youth like me has seen the start of the conflict, the escalation-war, witness its cease and lives its aftermath. I cant say that the war is over as it is still on in buffer zones, papers, TVs, online...anywhere. In 2009 I have decided to end the violence inside of me and join peacebuilders. Enrolled in Master Degree Program in USA through Edmund Muskie Program I have started my journey, the journey of peace. At the moment i am contributing in developing of Caucasus Center of Peacemaking Initiative which is currently working on uniting youth of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia through peace actions.
