In the frame of the TACES project, an European Studies Resource Center has been established at TNU in Dushanbe. In addition 3 European Studies Resource Points were implemented at the other participating universities, namely, in Khorog, Danghara and Khujand. The Resource Center as well as the Resource Points are complemented by libraries. On the one hand, the four sites serve as facilities for distance learning and teaching. On the other hand, they also serve as information points for academic, public and institutional use. Thus, they promote people to people contacts, intercultural awareness and understanding.
