The aim of this new initiative is to reach the general public as well as specialist audiences with informed assessments on the state of our world. It is an extension of the work being carried out both by the Center for International and European Studies (CIES) at Kadir Has University and the Panorama portal. As they believe that the study and understanding of International Relations should not be limited to academic audiences only, this forum was created to reach the general public.

The Foreign Policy Talks will be stand-alone discussions on topics that are newsworthy in the international context. They will be primarily delivered online via regular webinars, while some will encompass, whenever the circumstances permit, both a live audience and an online discussion. They will also be recorded and made available through websites and social media feeds of partner institutions.
