Rustin Zarkar on urban transformation and activism in Caucasus

Ajam Media Collective, an online space devoted to documenting and analyzing cultural, social, and political trends in the diverse Iranian, Central Asian, and Diaspora communities, initiated a new project called “Mehelle.” Mehelle aims to document rapidly changing neighborhoods in three post-Soviet cities: Baku, Tbilisi and Dushanbe. We spoke with Rustin Zarkar, editor of Ajam, on Mehelle and urban transformation projects in Caucasus.
