air Istanbul Airport Triple Runway Operations Simulation
Istanbul Airport Triple Runway Operations Simulation
28 May 2024
EUROCONTROL
Back in January and March 2024, we welcomed controllers from DHMI, the Turkish ANSP, to the EUROCONTROL Innovation Hub (EIH) in order to perform a major real-time simulation for triple-runway operations at iGA Istanbul Airport. This included testing new procedures for simultaneous and independent landing and take-off on three runways, which should pave the way for efficient use of Istanbul Airport’s all five runways. The simulation saw EIH, NM Safety and DHMI teams work together for four weeks using our ESCAPE ATC simulator, with Turkish Airlines pilots operating our A320 cockpit simulator. This allowed us to introduce more than 80 ATCOs and several pilots to the new procedures and collect their valuable feedback in support of the Operational Safety Assessment study. One of the specificities of the simulation was to test non-nominal cases that could occur in triple runway operations. A new “scenario manager” position was introduced to disrupt regular traffic flow by creating deviations to aircraft trajectories (climb or descend, turn, increase or decrease speed, adjust rate of descent, conduct missed approaches, etc.), measure reactions of air traffic controllers and pilots, and assess and possibly improve the related procedures. The simulation project took several months to prepare and execute, and we are now working on the final report. More about our simulation capabilities at EIH: https://www.eurocontrol.int/simulations

digital OxDEG Cryptohopes at times of crisis: Ethnographic examination of cryptocurrency trading in Istanbul
OxDEG Cryptohopes at times of crisis: Ethnographic examination of cryptocurrency trading in Istanbul
6 Mar 2024
Oxford Internet Inst...
This research paper is rooted in an 18-month ethnographic study of individuals actively engaged in economic speculation in Turkey during the 2021-2022 economic crisis. This paper delves into the dynamics of cryptocurrency trading, examining it as an endeavour influenced by both luck and skill, while also viewing it as a means of building savings in response to fluctuating national currency and political conditions. The ongoing economic crisis permeated everyday conversations, with participants perceiving economic volatility as having transformed the national currency, making it closely resemble the volatile nature of cryptocurrency tokens. Drawing on the fields of economic anthropology and gambling, this paper explores the rise of cryptocurrency trading in Turkey since 2019, investigates the imaginaries of wealth, both with and without labour, and examines the materiality of money as a token and commodity within the context of speculative economic practices in post-crisis economic capitalism. This research highlights the economic challenges faced by small businesses, the working class, and the precariat in Turkey during the crisis, emphasising their daily struggles. As individuals sought ways to support their families amid economic uncertainties and lira devaluation, those with savings in Turkish lira turned to exchange it for Euro and US dollars and cryptocurrency trading. Furthermore, the paper argues that cryptocurrency trading is a contested topic in the Turkish context, reflecting a dissonance between traditional values that condemn easy money and emphasise hard work and the capitalistic realities of neoliberal accumulation since the 1980s. Wesam Hassan is an anthropologist and a physician by training. Currently, she is a doctoral candidate in social anthropology at the University of Oxford, in which she is researching state-regulated games of chance practices and perceptions. In her MA thesis, she researched biomedical uncertainty through investigating the governance of HIV-positive subjectivities and its related biopolitics in Egypt. She thinks through concepts of uncertainty, speculation, gambling, and risk. She led several ethnographies researching material culture and consumption habits in Iran, Egypt, London, and Turkey. Some of these ethnographies have investigated womanhood and cleaning rituals in Iran, online gambling and betting in London, and the perception and usage of the Internet of Things and smart homes as a concept in Egypt. Prior to her academic career, Wesam worked as a public health specialist and researcher with United Nations agencies, John Hopkins University, and INGOs with a special focus on the intersectionality between HIV and AIDS, gender, harm reduction, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

What do middle powers think? The view from Turkey
11 Dec 2023

https://ecfr.eu/event/what-do-middle-powers-think-the-view-from-turkey/ Many people outside the West want Europe and the US in their lives for all they have to offer – but that does not translate into political alignment. Instead, they prefer to live in a world where they can trade with China, enjoy security cooperation with the US, and emulate the European way of life. A major new global public opinion poll across 21 countries commissioned by ECFR and Oxford University shows that we live in an à la carte world. If Europeans are to start playing the rules of an à la carte world – they need to first learn what middle powers think. Join Pawel Zerka, ECFR’s lead data analyst, for a series that delves into public opinion from three middle powers – Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Turkey – on issues ranging from global order, the war in Ukraine, and to China’s economic presence and US security. Each webinar lasts 30 minutes, with a quick-fire data-insights round, an analysis round with ECFR experts and regional voices, and a Q&A round with our audience. The second instalment of the series will focus on data from Turkey, where Pawel Zerka is joined by Vessela Tcherneva, ECFR Deputy Director, and Sinan Ülgen, Director of the Istanbul-based EDAM think tank, to understand how Turkish people position their country between the US, Europe, Russia and China.

In his remarks, Mehmet Öğütçü reflects upon Turkey’s elections on 14 and 28 May 2023 and the implications which Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s winning yet another mandate to run the country for the next five years may have for Europe. He examines whether there is any prospect of resetting EU-Turkey relations and what could be done to improve the dialogue between Brussels and Ankara on key issues such as energy, climate change, migration and tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean. Mr Öğütçü discusses whether Turkey’s new government will be able to change course from its current approach to relations with Moscow, as well as Turkey’s role in NATO enlargement. About the Speaker: Mehmet Öğütçü is the Chair of the London Energy Club. He is a former advisor to the Prime Minister, and diplomat in China, Belgium, France and the UK.

ECFR
The Annual Council Meeting 2023 took place on 7-8 June in Stockholm. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was a turning point in European history. More than one year into the war, it is high time to go beyond crisis management mode and have a more long-term strategic look at how Europe can build the capacity and the global coalitions which are necessary to defend European interests in the world. The Annual Council Meeting 2023 in Stockholm will aim to offer both a very timely opportunity to discuss how Europeans have met the challenge of a war on its soil, and a strategic outlook at how Europe should handle the polycrisis of dire economic straits and global ripple effects as a result of the war. As such, the ACM will serve as an important reality check in which European decision-makers and opinion-shapers get to frankly exchange their ideas of the challenges and opportunities underlying this polycrisis. ---------------------------------------- Wednesday, 7th June 2023 OPENING REMARKS AND FRAMING Lykke Friis, Co-Chair, ECFR ECFR INSIGHTS: KEEPING AMERICA CLOSE, RUSSIA DOWN, AND CHINA FAR AWAY: HOW EUROPEANS NAVIGATE A COMPETITIVE WORLD Jana Puglierin, Head of the Berlin Office and Senior Policy Fellow, ECFR PANEL I: THE POWER OF CONTROL: ECONOMIC COERCION IN THE FUTURE GLOBAL SYSTEM Carl Bildt, Co-Chair, ECFR Arancha González Laya, Dean, Paris School of International Affairs Jim O’Brien, Head of the Office of Sanctions Coordination, Department of State, United States Jovita Neliupšienė, Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs, Lithuania Moderated by Jakob Hanke Vela, Brussels Playbook Author, POLITICO ECFR INSIGHTS: A CONVERSATION ON THE TURKISH ELECTIONS Sinan Ülgen, Senior Fellow, Carnegie Europe Aslı Aydıntaşbaş, Associate Senior Policy Fellow, ECFR ECFR INSIGHTS: TRIBAL WARS: THE FOREIGN POLICY OF A POLARIZED POWER Jeremy Shapiro, Research Director, ECFR PANEL II: FOREIGN POLICY OF A POLARIZED AMERICA: WHAT THE 2024 US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION COULD MEAN FOR EUROPE AND THE WORLD Alexander Soros, Chair, Open Society Foundations Alexander Stubb, Professor & Director, European University Institute Alexander Velez-Green, former National Security Advisor to Senator Josh Hawley Nathalie Loiseau, Member of the European Parliament Moderated by Majda Ruge, Senior Policy Fellow, ECFR ---------------------------------------- Annual Council Meeting 2023, Day 1 | European Council on Foreign Relations playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLk6xUL9_9MA-1_1MvS4Gxa8EZKKClXj0m https://ecfr.eu

Over 100 Church members beaten and arrested at the Turkish Border
24 May 2023
EU Reporter
[KAPIKULE, TURKEY, May 24th, 9:00 GMT] - Over 100 members of The Ahmadi Religion of Peace and Light, a persecuted religious minority, who have presented themselves at the Turkish-Bulgarian border claiming asylum this morning have just been refused entry, violently beaten, pushed back and taken to Edirne public safety office. Gunshots were fired at them, they were threatened and their belongings thrown away. The group includes women, children and elderly. The 103 individuals have been subjected to extreme and systematic forms of religious persecution all across Muslim-majority countries because of their faith. They had been beaten, imprisoned, kidnapped, humiliated and terrorized in countries like Iran, Iraq, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Azerbaijan and Thailand. They had gathered in Turkey and were on their way to the Turkish-Bulgarian border to assume their human right to request asylum directly from the Bulgarian Border Police, in line with Article 58(4) of the Law on Asylum and Refugees (LAR), which states that asylum can be applied for with a verbal statement submitted in front of the border police. This comes after all attempts to obtain a visa on humanitarian grounds had been unsuccessful. Article 18 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights state that refugees have the right to asylum and to a full and fair individualised assessment with the right to appeal. The members of this religious minority have followed legal procedures in order to seek asylum as per internationally agreed-upon human rights laws.

"Conflict & Compromise: Turkey-Russia Relations and the West", Cana Tülüş Türk | TEPSA Explainers
20 Jul 2022
TEPSA - Trans Europe...
What is the relationship between Turkey and Russia? How does this relationship affect Turkey’s position within the EU? What should we expect in the future? And how should the EU and Turkey deal with Russia? Turkey’s stance in the Ukrainian war and its position in the Georgian conflict can be seen as a strategy to counter the Russian dominance in part of the EU’s neighbourhood. The war in Ukraine and the war between Azerbaijan and Armenia have shown the limits of Turkey-Russia cooperation and the strategic importance of Turkey for the West. In this video Cana Tülüş Türk, Research and Administrative Affairs Coordinator at Istanbul Policy Center and a PhD Candidate in Political Science, analyses Turkey-Russia relations in three key areas: history, economics, and politics, and what this all means for Europe in the wake of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine. She explains the steps Turkey has been taking in recent years to overcome its dependence towards Russia, including by diversifying its natural gas resources, and the factors that complicate bilateral relations between the two countries, not the least of which is the war in Ukraine. TEPSA Explainers are short videos elaborating on key issues in European affairs according to the expertise of the contributor. #TEPSAExplainers #Russia #Turkey TEPSA Website: https://www.tepsa.eu/​ TEPSA Twitter: https://twitter.com/tepsaeu​ TEPSA Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tepsa.eu​ TEPSA LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/tepsabrussels TEPSA Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tepsaeu/​ Music: The Stratosphere, song by Adam Vitovský

Did you enjoy your turkey this Christmas? Are you interested in rearing them yourselves? Do you have small areas of land which you think you could utilise better? This webinar is part of the three-webinar series “Making the most of a small area” This series aims to enable farmers and landowners to identify and fully utilise small areas of land, maximising income from a small land area. These topics are relevant not only to new entrants and farmers with small land areas but also to those with larger land areas who are looking to expand or diversify their businesses. With land values remaining high, making the most out of land already owned is more important than ever. Creating diversified enterprises has multiple benefits, including creating alternative income streams, increasing the resiliency of the business and enabling simpler separation of the business for succession purposes. Scotland’s Farm Advisory Service (FAS) is part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) which is co-funded by the EU and Scottish Government, providing information and resources aimed at increasing the profitability and sustainability of farms and crofts.

Erdoğan's Turkey Explained
8 Mar 2022
Carnegie Europe
Since coming to power in 2002, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has overseen a radical transformation of the country. Under his leadership, Ankara has parted ways with the United States and Europe, embraced Russia and other revisionist powers, and transformed from a frail democratic regime into an authoritarian one. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine presents Erdoğan with a major conundrum: how to balance Turkey’s ambivalent relationship with Moscow and Ankara’s erratic allegiance to NATO. To analyze the political trajectory of Erdoğan’s regime, discuss the current state of affairs, and look ahead to Turkey’s 2023 presidential election, Carnegie Europe is pleased to invite you to a conversation with Dimitar Bechev, author of “Turkey Under Erdoğan: How a Country Turned from Democracy and the West,” Asli Aydıntaşbaş, and Marc Pierini. Rosa Balfour will moderate. To submit a question for the event, please use the YouTube chat, email brussels@ceip.org, or tweet at us @Carnegie_Europe.

To better understand the standoff between France and Turkey, Aris Marghelis conducted a study on the French military’s perception of their Turkish counterparts. Even though the relationship between the two countries deteriorated quickly after the Syrian and Libyan civil wars, the French military kept high regard for the Turkish army.

France’s and Turkey’s divergent strategies in the EastMed have direct consequences on the European Strategic Autonomy, according to Antoine Michon. Both presidents have used their rivalry in the region to advance their own political agendas. For Emmanuel Macron, using Turkey as a ‘bugbear’ is a way to push forward the European Strategic Autonomy. However, the politicization of their rivalry also fits into Erdogan’s domestic and regional strategy.

These tensions go beyond a simple animosity between Erdogan and Macron and are part of a long-term geopolitical rivalry.

Should the next German government ditch Merkel’s “constructive dialogue” with Turkey and join France and Greece for a more confrontational approach? Guests Nilgün Arısan Eralp, EU Director at the Economic Policy Research Foundation of Turkey (against the motion) Kristian Brakel, Head of Office, Heinrich Böll Foundation Turkey (for the motion) Chaired by Ilke Toygür, CATS Fellow at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) During her last visit to Turkey as chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel repeated a long-held position: “differences – on human rights, Cyprus or other issues – can only be resolved through talks and contacts.” Turkish president Erdogan received her praise for halting migration into the EU and for finally ratifying the Paris climate agreement. Yet, under Erdogan’s rule Turkish democracy has been rolled back. Turkey also withdrew from the Istanbul Convention on preventing and combating violence against women. The number of political prisoners has skyrocketed, especially since the 2016 coup attempt. In the region, too, Turkey has been playing a more assertive role, supplying weapons to Azerbaijan in its recent conflict with Armenia, fuelling the civil war in Libya, and challenging Cyprus and Greece by exploring natural-gas reserves in the Eastern Mediterranean. Should the next German government ditch Merkel’s “constructive dialogue” with Turkey and join France and Greece for a more confrontational approach?

HEAL has held a press conference to launch the new analysis on “Chronic coal pollution Turkey: Cumulative health effects” highlights that the country’s decades-long dependency on coal power generation has led to unacceptably high health impacts and costs. From 1965-2020, coal power generation in Turkey has led to almost 200.000 premature deaths, sixty-two million lost working days, eleven million hospital admissions and other health impacts, with a cost of up to 320 billion EUR. HEAL' assessment also includes zooming into 4 coal pollution hotspots Zonguldak, Muğla, Çanakkale cities, İskenderun Bay. The health burden caused by thermal power plants only in Zonguldak, Çanakkale, Muğla and Iskenderun Bay adds up to 40% of Turkey’s total. The thermal power plants in Muğla are estimated to cause the highest number of premature deaths in Turkey. Finally, the analysis includes policy recommendations. Find out more: bit.ly/32wLeLp

Turkey is pushing ahead with plans to double its coal power capacity with 30 new coal power stations despite major health impacts and costs linked to the country’s existing coal fleet. A new analysis by the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) finds that the health impacts of coal pollution in Turkey currently generate economic costs of up to 10.9 billion EUR (or up to 99.37 billion Turkish Lira) annually, which is equivalent to up to 27% of its annual health expenditure. HEAL and seven leading Turkish health and medical organisations call for a coal phase out, as an essential step to protect people’s health, achieving cleaner air and tackling climate change. According to HEAL’s new Chronic Coal Pollution Turkey report, the 28 coal plants operating in 2019 caused a significant health burden, with nearly 5,000 premature deaths, 26,500 cases of bronchitis in children, 3,000 preterm births, and over 1,4 million workdays lost to illness. The report also details numbers on health impacts and costs of mercury, given that coal plants are a top emission source. Mercury exposure may reduce children’s IQ, and consequently decrease their educational and working achievements over a lifetime, with implications for society and the economy overall.

At the same time, the EU intensified its efforts to reach similar cooperation agreements with African states that are either source and/or transit countries for irregular migrants in the EU. The European Commission’s recently published ‘New Pact on Migration and Asylum’ (2020) proposes a range of measures aimed at expanding and increasing the effectiveness of cooperation with non-EU countries in the governance of migration and refugee protection. What has been the experience of past efforts of cooperation between the EU and countries in the EU neighbourhood? What concerns does such cooperation raise and how might they be addressed?

Building a geothermal plant has a small environmental impact, but the same can be said of any other renewable energy source. The key to clean energy projects is knowing the process before you start. That's why the GEOENVI project developed a new LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) methodology for geothermal energy. This video has Turkish subtitles.

'My visit to Turkey showed how far we still have to go before women are treated as equals'
26 Apr 2021
EU Reporter
Today (26 April) European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen made a strong statement on her treatment during her visit to Ankara to meet with Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, with the European Council president to discuss EU-Turkey relations. The statement was part of a joint briefing to MEPs with European Council President Charles Michel on the recent EU summit and the controversial EU-Turkey meeting where the Commission president was denied equal standing with her peer, in an incident referred to as “sofagate” where Von der Leyen was offered a place on a sofa, while Michel and Erdogan sat on chairs. “I am the first woman to be president of the European Commission. I am the president of the European Commission and this is how I expected to be treated when visiting Turkey two weeks ago, like a commission president, but I was not. I cannot find any justification for the way I was treated in the European treaties,” she concluded that it was because she was not wearing a suit and a tie. She said: “In the pictures of previous meetings, I did not see any shortage of chairs, but then again I did not see any women in these pictures either. Many of you will have had quite similar experiences in the past, especially the female members of this house. I'm sure you know exactly how I felt hurt and I felt alone as a woman and as a European, because it is not about seating arrangements or protocol. This goes to the core of who we are. This goes to the values our union stands for. And this shows how far we still have to go before women are treated as equals always and everywhere.” Von der Leyen acknowledged that she was in a privileged position compared to other women and underlined how it was even more important that she spoke up for those women who are not heard: “When I arrived at the meeting, there were cameras in the room. Thanks to them, the short video of my arrival immediately went viral and caused headlines around the world. There was no need for subtitles. There was no need for translations, the images spoke for themselves. “We all know that thousands of similar incidents go unobserved, nobody ever sees them or hears about them, because there is no camera, because there is nobody paying attention. We have to make sure that these stories are told and that they are acted upon.” She used the statement to call for adoption of the Istanbul convention on violence against women and children. Von der Leyen described it as a groundbreaking legal text and an inspiring document. It is the first internationally binding instrument to take a broad approach to combating violence against women and children. Von der Leyen used the meeting in Ankara to reiterate her concerns about Turkey withdrawing from the convention, but added that to be credible all EU states need to ratify the convention. At this moment Bulgaria, Hungary and Poland are among the countries that have opposed formal ratification. Von der Leyen said that she would like the EU itself to become a signatory.

Europe calls for ‘clear commitment from Turkey to maintain positive momentum’
7 Apr 2021
EU Reporter
In a follow-up to the recent European Council (25 March), Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (6 April), in Ankara, in the hope of giving the EU-Turkey relationship “new momentum”. Michel said he discussed the situation in the eastern Mediterranean and other areas of dispute. He said that although differences between the two sides remain, there were also new opportunities for peace and stability, especially in Libya. The EU's key message in this regard was that all foreign fighters and troops must leave Libyan territory. On Cyprus, the EU remains committed to the relaunch of the UN-led process, which will restart in a few weeks’ time with an informal meeting. ‘Progressive, proportional, and reversible’ The key phrase in Michel’s statement following the meeting is that engagement will be “progressive, proportional, and reversible”. Von der Leyen underlined this point, saying that while the EU has seen the beginning of a road together, it would have to see where the road leads and would depend on a “clear commitment from Turkey to maintain positive momentum, the sustainability of what we’ve seen over the last weeks has to be proven”. The Commission president summed up the discussions on four main areas of co-operation: The prospect of closer trade ties; high-level dialogues on climate and health issues, especially the use of the Digital Green Certificate, important to Turkey’s tourism sector and the mobility of Turkish citizens; enhanced people-to-people co-operation through Erasmus+ in particular; and, on refugees and migration, where von der Leyen underlined that the EU-Turkey statement of 2016 “remains valid and has brought positive results”. On future funding for refugees, von der Leyen said that this should increasingly power better opportunities for refugees to earn their own livelihood. Von der Leyen will also be meeting with the Jordanian king today (7 April) to discuss a proposal on Syrian refugees that covers Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. ‘Human rights are non-negotiable’ Von der Leyen described the discussion as “very frank” on what divides the EU and Turkey, with both EU leaders raising their concern about human rights and the rule of law. Von der Leyen said she was deeply worried by Turkey’s decision to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention on protecting women and children from violence, especially since Turkey was a founding member of the Council of Europe. When asked about the convention by a journalist, von der Leyen said that they did not convince Erdogan.

IN SEARCH OF A ‘LUWIAN’ STATE: REGIONAL ANALYSIS OF THE LATE BRONZE AGE IN THE KONYA PLAIN, TURKEY
2 Apr 2021
European Association...
One of the largest challenges in archaeologically identifying ‘Luwian’ socio-political entities in Late Bronze Age Anatolia is the close association between Luwian monumental inscriptions and Hittite hegemony. In this paper we draw together wide-ranging data from the Konya Plain in south-central Turkey, in particular recent results of the Konya Regional Archaeological Survey Project (KRASP), to suggest that one such socio-political entity might be located in the Konya Plain. We discuss Luwian-inscribed mon-uments in the orographic margins of the Plain in relation to a number of meaningful patterns in settlement and land use. These include: 1) large-scale urbanization in the second millennium BC; 2) the proliferation of new settlements in marginal landscapes during the Late Bronze Age; 3) the establishment of a defensive network of hilltop fortifications around the Konya Plain by the early second millennium BC, and probably earlier.The paper revisits the Tarhuntašša problem, but supported by these extensive regional survey data and a comparative literature on the archaeological landscapes of early state entities. Whilst both the ‘Luwian’ identity of the Late Bronze Age inhabitants of the Konya Plain and the identification of one or more sites with the Tarhuntašša capital remains conjectural at best, future research of KRASP will be guided by these and related considerations.” Author(s): Bachhuber, Christoph (University of Oxford) - Massa, Michele (British Institute at Ankara)

lIstanbul is situated at the crossroads of two continents and major sea lanes between the Black Sea basin and the Aegean. How-ever, until the excavations of Bathonea on the shores of the Küçükçekmece Lagoon Lake started in 2009 no evidence for human existence had been recovered from the 2nd millennium BC.Materials:Two Hittite type iron figurines, one lead figurine and a number of Hittites ceramics fragments belonging to fourteen distinct pitchers had been recovered in the excavations of İstanbul Küçükçekmece Lake Basin Bathonea excavation’s from the sectors 8-24. III. level of sectors are ∇+9.50- ∇+9.06 m. Additionally, a well-known Cyprus White Slip II ceramic piece from 2. Millennium BC, two Mycenaean ceramic fragments and further Balkan ceramics from the same era were also recovered from the same context .Besides architecture, a crate shaped warehouse and some walls were found. The architectural traces were came from under 30 cm of sea sand.Goals and Methods:In order to answer the questions of how these artefacts might have reached the region, it is necessary to examine the relations of the Hittites with West Anatolia, as recorded in their texts, and to compare the findings with the archaeological material of West Anatolia.It is obvious that the Hittites were closely interested in Western and Northwestern Anatolia since the early years of the Kingdom. The most remarkable information about the Hittites’expansion to the Northwest Aegean and Marmara region is recorded in the Tuthalia I/II text, declaring war with the Aššuwan Confederacy. In the aftermath of this event, Hittites seem to have established close relations with Troia and annexed the region to the south of Marmara, declaring the king of Masa Land as vassal. The Hittites may also have passed into Thrace over the sea from this region. Author(s): Aydingun, Sengul (Kocaeli University)

European Council considers report of HRVP for a more ‘positive engagement’ on EU-Turkey relations
25 Mar 2021
EU Reporter
At the December 2020 European Council, EU leaders invited the EU’s High Representative to submit a report on the state of play of EU-Turkey political, economic and trade relations, and on instruments and options on how to proceed. Ahead of today’s European Council Borrell said that the EU has seen some positive developments over the last month on the part of Turkey, but that the situation remains fragile. Borrell said that he will lay out what he described as a double-track approach: “On the one hand positive measures and on the other hand measures that can be taken if the situation deteriorates. Those measures have to be implemented in a gradual and progressive way to make them reversible. We're trying to look for a positive engagement.” The current EU-Turkey relations will be assessed in the broader context of recent developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and on other regional issues. Over recent years Turkey has escalated its rhetoric against the EU and taken unilateral actions including oil exploration activities in the Eastern Mediterranean. Turkey also took steps to open Varosha a contested area subject to UN council resolutions on the island of Cyprus. The European Union has consistently supported the resumption of negotiations, under the auspices of the UN to reach a comprehensive settlement on Cyprus.

The International Energy Agency will host a webinar for the launch of its publication Energy Policies of IEA Countries: Turkey 2021, on Thursday, 11 March, at 10:00 AM CEST, with Deputy Minister H.E. Dr. Alparslan Bayraktar, Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey and Dr. Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency. The guiding principles of Turkish energy policy continue to be market reform and energy security. Rapid economic and population growth in the past two decades have not only driven strong growth in energy demand but also an associated increase in import dependency. In response, Turkey has prioritised boosting domestic energy production, diversifying its supply sources and associated infrastructure, and reducing energy consumption through increased energy efficiency. Notwithstanding many positive changes Turkey has made toward liberalising its energy markets and diversifying its energy sources, the government should ensure that its policies do not impede the economic efficiency of markets and the country’s longer-term decarbonisation efforts. In this report, the IEA provides Turkey with recommendations to further bolster its energy security and navigate its future energy challenges and opportunities in the most cost-efficient and sustainable way.

fossil Prospects for coal and clean coal in Turkey | IEACCC Webinars
Prospects for coal and clean coal in Turkey | IEACCC Webinars
25 Nov 2020
IEA Clean Coal Centre
Turkey has one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Rapid economic expansion, rising population, and growing industrialisation have triggered a general increase in energy demand. Over the next ten years energy demand is expected to double. In order to meet this, significant investment in the energy sector will be required. Turkey's indigenous energy resources are limited almost exclusively to lignite and smaller amounts of hard coal, so there is a heavy dependence on imported sources of energy. More than 90% of Turkey’s oil and 98% of its natural gas is imported, as is much of the hard coal consumed, as a considerable cost. The government aims to reduce this, partly through the greater use of domestic lignite, widely available in many parts of the country. Thus, the government has a ‘coal strategy’ and has introduced incentives to encourage the its greater utilisation. Many new power generation projects are in the pipeline, some fired on lignite and others that will rely on imported hard coal. Many existing state-owned coal-fired power assets (and coalfields) are in the process of being transferred to the private sector. Some power plants require modernising and this is being factored into their selling price. The current coal-based generating fleet comprises plants based on conventional pulverised coal or fluidised bed combustion technology. Some newer projects plan to use supercritical steam conditions and all major power plants will be required to install effective emission control systems. The further development and application of a range of clean coal technologies is being pursued by a number of Turkish utilities, technology developers, and universities. There is increasing involvement with international projects and, in many cases, growing links with overseas counterparts. -----------------------------------------------------------------Presenter: Dr Stephen Millshttps://www.iea-coal.org/about/teams/stephen-mills/Download this presentation:https://www.iea-coal.org/webinar/prospects-for-coal-in-turkey/-----------------------------------------------------------------Twitter:https://twitter.com/IEACCCLinkedin:https://www.linkedin.com/company/2453501

Maria Theresia stage - Day 2, 9.45 - 10.10 In recent memory, it is hard to identify a time that was filled with as many global challenges as of today. Climate crisis, mass migration, the return of great power competition, the resurgence of the geopolitical contest, Covid-19 pandemic defy all actors as well as the rules-based international order. In this complex world of multiple crises, Turkey, a NATO and G20 member as well as an EU candidate, identified its foreign policy as enterprising and humanitarian and emerged as a pivotal anchor in a volatile neighbourhood. Where does Turkey see NATO’s role evolving against the backdrop of the NATO 2030 agenda? How can Turkey and EU member states pursue an honest dialogue to overcome differences and return to a robust membership course? How can the full potential of Turkish-EU cooperation be unleashed? Speaker: H.E. Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey Led by: Steve Clemons, Editor-at-Large, The Hill, Washington, D.C. ?

Safeguarding Archaeological Assets of Turkey (SARAT) is an educational and awareness-raising project that has had a considerable impact on the protection and appreciation of Turkey’s rich, diverse, and at times threatened, archaeological heritage. SARAT carried out four interconnected programmes to strengthen the skills and increase knowledge and awareness of heritage amongst heritage professionals, heritage-related people and the general public. The Excellence Fair offers the laureates of the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards an opportunity to present their award-winning initiatives to their colleagues in the heritage community and to the wider public. This year, the Excellence Fair goes digital, with each project providing a video presentation of their work, wherein they go into further detail on the success and impact of their achievements as well as the challenges that they faced and had to overcome.

development Strengthening disability inclusion in humanitarian action
Strengthening disability inclusion in humanitarian action
8 Oct 2020
Overseas Development...
The past five years have been pivotal for advancing disability inclusion in the humanitarian sector. The World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul in 2016 was a key moment at which it was recognised that while persons with disabilities are disproportionately impacted by conflicts, disasters and other emergencies, they also face barriers to accessing life-saving humanitarian assistance. The Inter-Agency Standing Committee guidelines on the inclusion of persons with disabilities in humanitarian action, is the latest in a range of commitments, standards and guidance developed in the wake of the Summit to address these barriers. Despite this progress challenges to effective inclusion remain. Chief among these is acknowledging that persons with disabilities and their organisations are not passive beneficiaries but agents of change, rights holders and key actors in humanitarian response. The lack of data about people with disabilities that any efforts to strengthen inclusion depend on is another important gap. Drawing on the upcoming Humanitarian Exchange on Disability Inclusion and Network Paper on addressing the disability data gap, we discuss disability-inclusive practices and approaches being used; and what more needs to be done to ensure the rhetoric around disability-inclusive humanitarian preparedness and response is being translated into action. A video introduction is provided by Christian Modino Hok, Humanitarian Director at CBM Disability Inclusion and Co-Chair of the Global Reference Group on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action.

Tuesday, 29. September, 15.30 – 16.45 CEST With George A. Papandreou, Member of Parliament, Movement for Change; former Prime Minister of Greece Dorothée Schmid, Senior Research Fellow; Head of Turkey and Middle East Program, IFRI Asli Aydintasbas, Senior Policy Fellow, ECFR Chaired by Jana Puglierin, Head of Berlin office & Senior Policy Fellow, ECFR Virtual discussion with George A. Papandreou, Dorothée Schmid and Asli Aydintasbas on Europe´s mediatory power and potential for Turkish-Greek reconciliation. A conflict is brewing in the Eastern Mediterranean, with Turkey, Greece and Cyprus at loggerheads about maritime borders, exclusive economic zones, and gas exploration. There is a risk for a wider conflict that draws in Middle East powers as well as other member states. Europe has a vested interest in stability on its southern flank and in making sure NATO partners do not clash over energy resources. But so far, EU-led mediation efforts have not led to a resolution of the conflict. What is the best strategy for de-escalation? Will Europe be able to overcome its internal divisions on East Med? Will the special European Council meeting on Oct 1-2 push things forward? Can there be a new bargain with Turkey that is acceptable to member states and addresses both Greek and Turkish concerns? What to expect from the forthcoming 61st round of exploratory talks between Turkey and Greece? Read more analysis on the eastern Mediterranean here: https://www.ecfr.eu/topic/eastern-mediterranean
