TPQ roundtable meetings and seminars are organized several times a year with the purpose of discussing the current developments in Turkey and its neighborhood, relevant to the issues taken up in the recently published editions of TPQ. These meetings serve as deliberative platforms by bringing the media, academics, decision makers, civil society representatives, students, and business people together.
These events have attracted the attention of prominent figures from politics, civil society, and the media as well. In recent years, Secretary of State of the U.S. Madeleine Korbel Albright, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Sweden Carl Bildt, and Emeritus Professor Lord Anthony Giddens have participated in our roundtables as speakers.
A complete list of TPQ events can be found below.
