Three main research areas

SUITS is an interdisciplinary research institute that aims to produce research of the highest international quality within both the social sciences and humanities. Research at the institute falls under the broad label Turkish studies, with the following foci.

Governance, Economics and Contemporary Topics

Turkey has transitioned from a struggling economy plagued by persistently high inflation during the 1990s to an increasingly modern industrial economy characterized by high growth and stable inflation today.

International Relations

As a country with roots in both Europe and Asia, Turkey has the unique potential to serve as a crucial bridge between East and West. But Turkey is more complex than even the bridge metaphor suggests.

Culture, Language and Society

The transformation of the Turkish economy is associated hand in hand with broader societal changes, such as the emergence of a new middle class, rapid urbanization, and changes in the role of religion in public life.
