The Center for International and European Studies (CIES) at Kadir Has University will host the 6th International Neighbourhood Symposium (INS) at Heybeliada, near Istanbul between Tuesday, 21 June and Sunday, 26 June 2016. This year’s Symposium will focus on “Societal Transformations in the Eastern Neighbourhood and the Mediterranean South”.
The 2016 International Neighbourhood Symposium aims to discuss, assess, and understand the regional dynamics as well as the impact these are having on the transformation of the societies of the countries of the Eastern Neighbourhood and the Mediterranean South.
Discussions will focus on societal transformations, with the goal of presenting fresh perspectives and challenge participants to an active debate. While some sessions have a general geographic focus; most will be thematic by stressing the perspective and potential of the human capital from the regions. All of these points will be discussed further through Structured Dialogue workshops facilitated by Professor Benjamin Broome from Arizona State University whereby participants will be presenting project proposals emanating from their cooperation in the workshops.
The Symposium’s target group is young professionals and graduate students aged 22 to 35 years old, primarily from the countries of the Eastern Neighbourhood, the Mediterranean South, Central Asia, EU member states, and the United States. Applicants from the fields of public policy, politics, journalism, and business are especially encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is Tuesday, 31 March 2016.
