COMPARISON OF SO-CALLED "ARMENIAN GENOCIDE" WITH HOLOCAUST(24.04.2016)

Comparison of So-Called

A number of writers and public figures, referring to the topic of "Armenian genocide", also often referred to the Holocaust, by comparing the most tragic events of 1915 with the proven fact of genocide, which is the Holocaust. By equating the so-called "Armenian genocide" to the Holocaust, the Armenian side is trying to attach to these events the same level of importance, identity and tragic, that is given to the Holocaust around the world. Except for some marginal groups and authors, the whole world recognizes the Holocaust as genocide and a great tragedy. Perpetrators of this genocide are known. There are decisions of the Nuremberg Tribunal, as...

A New Era in the Central Bank and April 20th

On 12 April 2016, Murat Çetinkaya was announced to be the new president of the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey.

IN PURSUIT OF SANCTIONS OR FORGIVENESS!(28.07.2015)

In Pursuit of Sanctions or Forgiveness!

The field of international relations is a tricky one. Politics, diplomacy and self-interests determine the role and positioning of nations at international level. It is like a screenplay in which each and every country tries to self-maximize its interests through different acts. Of course this goes without saying that they vie out for strong regional influence, along with cultural, economic and technological exchange.States have divided themselves into different groups and have thus positioned themselves in an “us versus them logic” which has created rift in the common human understanding. In an oversimplifying manner, to strengthen political rel...

THINK TANKS IN TURKEY: INSIGHTS FOR SUCCESS (23.03.2015)

Think Tanks in Turkey: Insights for Success

6681 think-tanks were included in the 2014 Think Tanks and Civil Society Programme World’s Best Think Tank Rankings (UPENN Index) of Pennsylvania University. According to this year’s report, 31 think tanks exist in Turkey, and Turkey was assessed within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The main notion that should be discussed herein is that some of those countries that are socio-economically underdeveloped possess more think tanks than Turkey. For instance, in Palestine, where a constant war atmosphere is evident, 44 think tanks exists, whereas, in Egypt, according to this report, 57 think tanks are active. In a way the UPENN index serves as...
