THO will be presenting a research symposium of seven people on Nov. 30 in DC.

The THO Summer Research Program in Turkey is an annual, all-expenses-paid, month-long research trip in Turkey, during which selected young researchers participate in meetings, excursions, and fieldwork on a chosen subject. The 2018 theme was “Refugees and Asylum-Seekers in Turkey: Challenges, Opportunities, and Approaches,” which gave students and recent graduates the unique opportunity to learn firsthand about refugees, humanitarian aid, and how Turkey manages the humanitarian crisis.

During the month-long program, participants conducted a modest research project on a subject of their choosing in relation to the program theme. They had the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C., Istanbul, Ankara and Gaziantep.
