The project “Bukovyna as a Contact Zone” looks at the interactions of different cultural, identity and historical strands present in the historic region of Bukovyna – the Ukrainian-Romanian borderland region. The project is based on a sociological survey which addresses questions of self identification, collective memory, and images of the “other” at the level of the Romanian community in the Northern part of Bukovyna (Ukraine) and the Ukrainian community in Southern part of Bukovyna (Romania). The main data obtained from the survey can be found upon the following link http://quadrivium.org.ua/bukovyna/en/survey/

The presentations sparked great interest among scholars, experts, policy-makers, representatives of local authorities.
