EVENTS

Human development and the reduction of poverty remain as the important goals of Turkish society today - with many civil society organizations, public administration, Government as well as academics, political parties and international organizations committed to improving the welfare and living standards of the Turkish people.

The Human Development Dialogue (İnsani Gelişme Diyaloğu- İGED) is an initiative supported by the United Nations in Turkey and the World Bank Turkey Country Office. It aims to facilitate a dialogue on human development, intending to complement the ongoing initiatives and activities that are taking place in many cities around Turkey today.

Linking up with existing centers of dialogues at major universities in Turkey, the Dialogue will invite speakers from abroad to talk about new analytical findings and evidence as well as ongoing policy discussions and reforms. Further, we aim for Dialogue to be a platform for Turkish scholars as well as technical professionals in the public administration and civil society to discuss and share their experiences and analytical findings regarding human development.
