Turkish researchers from the Center for Middle Eastern Strategic Studies (ORSAM) recently visited START to present their ongoing research into ISIL and the terrorist group’s use of propaganda. In addition to offering a lecture, Haldun Yalcinkaya and Bedii Celik sought feedback from START researchers and students on their latest publications.

The researchers were here as part of ORSAM’s efforts to diversify sources of information on the Middle East and bring to light perspectives and research from Turkish academia. ORSAM is a nonpartisan and non-profit research center based in Ankara that carries out research on social, economic and political developments in the Middle East.
