  • The Centre organised a conference by Chris Kutschera to coincide with the second international conference on Kurdish Studies. The exhibition, “A photographic journey through Kurdish history”, presented key events and personalities of Kurdish history through the eye of this photographer who has covered Kurdistan with her husband, a journalist, for 40 years. It was a very emotional moment to hear the reporters remembering their first trip to Kurdistan and their many stories. Find out more.
