MiReKoc Wednesday Seminar Series

Virtual Place



The Seminar Series promised to be a thought-provoking and insightful event, as it brought together a group of exceptional researchers, students and city stakeholders to deliberate on themes central to the BROAD-ER Project (Bridging the Migration and Urban Studies Nexus). Coordinated by Migration Research Center at Koc University, as an EC-funded Twinning Project, BROAD-ER aimed to build a Research Excellence Network that fostered interdisciplinary research and training at the nexus of migration and urban studies. BROAD-ER was a collaboration between Pompeu Fabra University in Spain, the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and Koç University in Turkey. Its main goal was to close the research gap within the European Research Area (ERA) by establishing innovative and interdisciplinary approaches, while also increasing research and innovation capacities in Turkey in emergent fields of migration and urban studies.
