What an excellent idea, to combine "peace" with "memory", and both of them with education, or. more precisely, the lack of it! In this conference on memory ground between the origin of the Ottoman Empire in Bursa, Troy of Homer fame, and Gallipoli of modern Turkey.
So I will divide my address in two parts. one devoted to an operational definition of "peace, the fact peace, not the word; and one to the present crisis in Turkey to see whether the definition of peace can give us some ideas about, say, the Taksim square-Gezi Park. There is no value to peace theory unless it is peace practice indicative.
