Civic Talks

The book “Civic” by Hakan Altınay, the founder and director of the European School of Politics, was published in April 2023. As the Program Team, we decided to organize alumni meetings to talk about the themes that appear in the book, such as solidarity, conversation, goodwill.

The first one was held on June 18th at MEF University in Istanbul. Prof. Erhan Erkut and journalist/author Emine Uçak attended and discussed their thoughts on the book. We organized the second meeting on July 8th in Ankara and hosted Prof. Evren Balta.

Our next stop was Izmir. On July 22nd, we met with Education Policies Expert Batuhan Aydagül, and talked about the book.

We brought our alumni together with historian Assoc. Prof. Fatih Artvinli in Bursa on August 12 and Emine Uçak in Gaziantep on September 2. After the meetings, we continued the conversations over lunch.

We organized our 6th meeting with Assoc. Prof. Ulaş Bayraktar in Adana. Then we met with academician Murat Sevinç in Diyarbakır on October 7 for the 7th meeting.
