The objective of the eight-day young leader’s programme is to strengthen the ties between future decision makers from Turkey and Europe with a view to leveraging European discourse and creating a network based on mutual trust. In workshops, lectures and intercultural training, the participants share their sector- and country-specific perspectives and learn from each other.Will Emmanuel Macron’s pro-European tendencies lead to the strengthening of the Franco-German axis many have been waiting? What will be the official German position in the aftermath of the post-election standstill? Will, on the other hand, illiberal tendencies in some member states gain momentum? What consequences may the changes within Europe’s framework have for neighbors and accession candidates, especially Turkey? These questions are at the core of our Forum 2018 for which you can apply now.
The Forum is organized by Stiftung Mercator, a German private foundation, in cooperation with TÜSİAD, a Turkish voluntary business organization.
