Nice to meet you. Let us see whether we can develop any common projects, or me or my university may participate in existing or coming projects.
By the way, I am very familiar with Kazan Tatars and love Tatarstan :)
Keep in touch.
Dear Sezai, it is nice knowing you too. I would like to hear more what type of projects you are running/developing on diversity management. Two years ago, I attended a diversity management/conflict resolution training seminar in Budapest. When I went back home, I thought there are not many options to conduct work on "diversity management". I would like to hear more on that and hope you can inspire me on that. Currently, I work on two projects at the Human Rights Law Research Center of Bilgi University. One is on victim-offender mediation, the other relates to fight against racism and xenophobia. All the best,
