The Consortium for European Symposia on Turkey works to advance the field of Turkish studies in Europe and provide opportunities for young scholars through academic events that promote idea exchange, visibility, and networking.
In 2014, CEST began organising annual conferences, hosted at rotating member universities. In 2021 CEST will inaugurate a summer school aimed at providing young scholars with the tools they need to succeed in academia.
The project is funded primarily by Stiftung Mercator, with additional contributions from the Swedish Institute, Stockholm University, and other CEST institutions.
