About icon down


Innovative research and successful public policy programs thrive on strong partnerships built over time, across sectors and borders. Committed entirely to this principle, IPC works with a broad network of think tanks from Turkey, Europe, the United States, and different regions from around the world. IPC’s collaboration with these institutions contributes to its multi-vectored, diverse, objective and expansive policy research and analysis. These strong ties with leading global public policy institutions also play a vital role in improving political, economic, and academic cooperation between Turkey, Europe, the United States, and other strategic actors.


IPC works closely with a diverse community of policymakers, journalists, scholars, and civil society activists. The Center also cooperates with universities, think tanks, foundations, as well as central and local government agencies.
