TRT World Research Centre would like to invite you to join our panel in the UK Parliament on ‘the role of Turkey on the refugee crisis and the road ahead for Europe,’ which will be held on June 19th between 19:00-21:00.

TRT World Research Centre is a non-profit research and policy institute, providing thorough analysis and understanding on regional and international issues.

The event marks World Refugee Day and provides an opportunity to discuss the refugee crisis and the underlying socioeconomic pressures and challenges ahead for Europe. Today, more than 65 million people are forcibly displaced as a result of violent conflicts and natural disasters.

Turkey hosts the largest refugee population in the world. This panel will thus discuss the Turkish experience, some of the lessons learned, and what can Europe do to tackle the refugee crisis.
The speakers will be:

♣ Dr Mehmet Gulluoglu, President of AFAD, Disaster and Emergency Management Authority
♣ Dr Eiko Thielemann, Associate Professor in Political Science & Public policy, at Department of Government and European Institute of London School of Economics (LSE)
♣ Shoshana Fine, Visiting Fellow of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) and Research Associate for International Studies and Research (CERI)
♣ Professor Talip Kucukcan, Professor of Sociology at the Marmara University in Istanbul, Turkey
♣ Lord Mark McInnes will kindly host us on this occasion.
