Network Coordination

Situated at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) in Berlin, CATS acts as the curator of the CATS Network. Being itself an independent research institution, it analyses the political, economic, and social developments in Turkey as well as the Turkey-European relations. Drawing upon its research, CATS advises political decision-makers on a German and European level and provides information to the media and the public.

The CATS team, in exchange with network partners, identifies research gaps in Turkey studies, and announces fellowships and topics for project funding. The CATS management team informs and advises on the processes of project application and funding.
