The Dialogue comprises three conferences on regional and global security issues. On May 10, CSSPR and the Istanbul Aydin University will host a conference titled ‘Evaluation of Regional Security Issues: Turkish and Pakistani Perspectives.’ This roundtable is aimed at assessing some of the most pressing issues dominating the security landscape that, going forward, could, collectively and individually, effect a series of changes in Ankara’s and Islamabad’s security orientations and policies. In this conference, a 16-member group of experienced and highly-qualified scholars from Turkey will deliberate on a host of security-related issues through a Turkish lens. Meet them here.
On May 11, CSSPR, along with SETA Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research, and Hasan Kalyoncu University, will host a conference on ‘Transnationalism Vs Statism : Generating and Consuming Security’. This scholarly exchange of views between Pakistani and Turkish scholars will enable them to deconstruct not only a plethora of challenges facing states but also how the force of globalization, with its threats and opportunities, is affecting states’ behaviors and approaches towards security. A 10-member delegation, comprising top-notch Turkish academics, will share Turkey’s perspectives in this conference. Meet them here.
On May 12 and 13, CSSPR and the Bahcesehir University (BAU) will hold dialogues on ‘Regional Security Architecture’ and ‘Global Security Landscape’, respectively.
