What we do
International conflict and the abandonment of the search for common interests is often based on misreading of motives, sometimes accidental and sometimes purposeful.
The Centre for British-Turkish Understanding aims to explore motives and foreign policy challenges faced by both Turkey and the UK, especially where they intersect, which form the foundations of the UK-Turkey relationship.
