How do geopolitical rivalries between China and the USA affect relations between Turkey and the EU? How can cooperative structures be ensured in times of global realignments? How does ideological competition affect civil liberties and human rights?

Every year, the Turkey Europe Future Forum (TEFF) brings together committed Turkish and European young leaders for an intensive dialogue. The 8th Turkey Europe Future Forum explores the challenges and opportunities that the changing geopolitical landscape may pose for the future of Turkish-European relations. Would you like to contribute to networking and mutual understanding between future decision-makers from Turkey and Europe? Then apply now until 21 January!
