Centre for Policy and Research on Turkey (Research Turkey) is an independent, non-partisan organization devoted to policy analysis and research focusing primarily on contemporary Turkey. It aims at sharing a wide range of publication types including reviews, interventions, political, economic and social analyses, working papers, interviews and commentaries by following interdisciplinary trends in the global world and examining Turkey and the global world from different points of view.  Against the tendency to homogenize perspectives in the media and to reduce complex political and social reality to simplistic analysis, it welcomes theoretical and political pluralism to reach a more comprehensive, multi-sided understanding of contemporary Turkey in its global context. Research Turkey is an institution based in London. All of Research Turkey’s content is published both in English and Turkish.
