London School of Economics

The establishment of the Turkish Studies chairs at leading universities around the world is an essential element of Turkey’s promotional activities abroad. Such professorial chairs are important not only for the promotion of Turkish history and culture, but also for providing a platform to express Turkey’s point of view and opinions on current events outside of the country. In this context, a chair for Contemporary Turkish Studies was established at the London School of Economics, one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world, thanks to the efforts of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Akfen holds a permanent membership on the Advisory Board, a function fulfilled by Pelin Akın. Akfen is pleased to support such an important project geared toward promoting Turkey.
