This month, the FEASS Transdisciplinary Senior Project courses have continued to bring expert speakers to campus to share their knowledge with GE440 and GE443 students.

On November 13, Dr. İpek İlkkaracan Ajas from İstanbul Technical University spoke about women’s participation in the economy in Turkey and about the challenges ahead. She introduced the concept of “the purple economy” and highlighted the principles of this economic development model, which is more inclusive and egalitarian.

The following week’s guest speaker was Prof. Meltem Müftüler-Baç from Sabancı University, who addressed the students on November 20. Prof. Müftüler-Baç presented an overview of global governance by examining three components: the economy, the military and demography. She raised questions about Turkey’s place in contemporary global governance systems and discussed what the future may hold in that regard.
