MiReKoc is delighted to invite all interested participants to join us for the upcoming MiReKoc-BROAD-ER Wednesday Seminar Series, organized under the BROAD-ER Project and in collaboration with Koç University College of Administrative Science and Economics’ International Relations Seminar Series.

This year, the Seminar Series promises to be a thought-provoking and insightful event, as it brings together a group of exceptional researchers and stakeholders to deliberate on themes central to the BROAD-ER Project (Bridging the Migration and Urban Studies Nexus). As an EC-funded Twinning Project, BROAD-ER aims to build a Research Excellence Network that fosters interdisciplinary research and training at the nexus of migration and urban studies. BROAD-ER is a collaboration between GRITIM-UPF Interdisciplinary Research Group on Immigration, Pompeu Fabra University in Spain, the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and Koç University in Turkey. Its main goal is to close the research gap within the European Research Area (ERA) by establishing innovative and interdisciplinary approaches, while also increasing research and innovation capacities in Turkey in emergent fields of migration and urban studies.

Engage in meaningful dialogue and gain invaluable insights from experts in the field. We look forward to welcoming you to the Seminar Series.

Let’s come together and bridge the migration and urban studies nexus!

The schedule of the Webinar is as follows:

  • Ricard Zapata-Barrero, 29 MARCH, “Urban Resilience, Migration Governance and Mediterranean Region-building”
  • Aylin Yardımcı, 5 APRIL, “Istanbul’s International Vision in Practice: Pay It Forward”
