The “Radicalization Field of Excellence” Webinars Start in Turkey

The Radicalization Field of Excellence at the Istanbul Bilgi University reflects on the scientific and artistic approaches to radicalization.

25 November 2021,

Focusing on the debates in Turkey and Europe based on various theoretical lenses and empirical studies, our team aims to contribute to the broader public discussion that transcends academia.

The Radicalization Field of Excellence Webinar Series, which the PRIME Youth participates in cooperation with the European Institute and the Department of International Relations at the Istanbul Bilgi University, evaluates the concept(s) of radicalization in International Relations, Political Science, Law, Media, Cinema, and Psychology.
