In the conjuncture we live in, it is very significant not only for the Western societies and Eastern societies but also Northern and Southern societies to avoid clashes through peaceful dialogues, and to encourage political, cultural and economic interaction. This is more so for Turkey, which is located in a critical geography, encompassing various peoples. In order to attain peaceful understanding and dialogue between different societies and cultures, there is an utmost need for studies which can create awareness on cultural discrepancies and commonalities. Such studies are indeed necessary in order to give a positive shape to cultural and economic relations. The aim of the Center is to provide an environment in which academics from various sorts can analyze the phenomena of culture and intercultural dialogue from different angles and in a holistic fashion.
