Turkish Studies from Different Perspectives

Book introduction by Mert Uydacı

ATINER Institute was established in 1995 as an independent academic organization with the mission to become a forum where academics and researchers from all over the world could meet in Athens and exchange ideas on their research and consider the future developments of their fields of study. Our mission is to make ATHENS a place where academics and researchers from all over the world meet to discuss the developments of their discipline and present their work. To serve this purpose, conferences are organized along the lines of well-established and well defined scientific disciplines. In addition, interdisciplinary conferences are also organized because they serve the mission statement of the Institute. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 150 international conferences and has published over 100 books. This book consists of selected papers presented at the 3rd International Conference on Turkey and Turkish Studies 27-30 June 2016, organized by the Athens Institute for Education and Research. In total there were forty-eight papers and sixty-three presenters, coming from eight different countries. The conference was organized into various sessions that included areas of social and physical sciences, political science and other related fields. The twenty-four papers in this book were selected for inclusion after a process of blind-review. In the good tradition of ATINER, the aim of the above mentioned conference was to provide information in various areas of research and to exchange of ideas about Turkey and Turkish Studies. I would like to thank all the participants, the members of the organizing and academic committee and most importantly the administration staff of ATINER for putting this conference together. Also, the process of producing the book could not have been undertaken without the valuable assistance of Res. Asst. Ekin Karapınar and Res. Asst. Gözde Güsan.
